Going on a Bee Safari…

top bar hiveYesterday I  joined my hubby on a “bee safari” to visit the hives of one of the local bee club members.  And so I donned my snazzy bee keeping jacket with hood and joined in the fun. bee safari gal crop

This particular bee yard had 4 working hives, including a very unusual “top bar” hive which allows the bees to make more natural combs.top bar view window

Afterwords we joined our hosts for some snacks and a bit of bee chat.  They had even made these awesome cupcakes with a honeycomb shaped cookie top and little jellybean & icing bees – yummy!!cupcake crop

All in all a fun day.  It was nice to spend some quality time with my beekeeper hubby and learn a bit more about the art of keeping bees.
