4 KIDS NO DOG and a BABY

Busy Bees!

Ok Literally, the kids were playing in the back yard, when I saw a panic stricken G-man knocking at the back window, telling me to open it and to hurry. I ran to the window when he informed me that a sworm of bees were coming his way...And when I looked out, he was not kidding. They stirred up a hive that we didn't know we had on our tree. One I think that is recently being built. I tried to get a video of the swarm but it didn't show up. But I got a picture of them back on their hive, busily building it. It is about 2-3 feet long and about 4-6 inches wide. You might want to zoom in on this to make it bigger. I bet it is a great selling feature...
Active beehive! Free Honey!!
* Update: My father in law's friend raises bees, I don't know what the correct term is..Bee Keeper...anyway he brought by a hive for them and hopefully by morning they will all be in it. He had been thinking this morning he should put an extra hive in his car because the swarms of bees would be out soon. He was right. They apparently just stopped by our house today to rest and try to find a great place to build their hive.

That is crazy and so scary. Mollie in the summer tells me that we have to move because there are too many bees.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Thanks for the birthday wishes. I came by to check you out too.
I am now scared! Scared of all those bees! Where do you live? I do not want to move there!

Wow, who wouldn't want free honey..lol

But serioulsy, I'm glad G-man wasn't hurt. He's had enough the last week. It's also good that your family knows someone that can help.

So the scariest part of the story came when I was laying in bed with Corrine watching Leno and we hear a thud outside. The bee box had fallen off the ladder. Corrine made me go out and put the lid on the box and put it back up. She wouldn't even walk outside. There I was, armed in oven mits, trying to put the lid on a box covered with bees and lifting it into a tree. I grabbed a rope a tied the box on to keep it from coming off.
