Learning about Beekeeping

pool bee

I was filling my backyard pool today (thanks Bianca!) and decided to do a bit of skimming. I guess this gal was thirsty – or maybe got too hot? – she showed up on the skimmer. Then I started noticing that there was more than one bee in the pool…. hmmm….

The rain today should give them more options for places to get water, so they don’t have to drown in my pool.

Tomorrow I should be going to check on the honey situation – today was too risky in terms of when it might start raining, so I decided to put it off.
