Bees in the Blackberry
« on: May 10, 2009, 09:37:47 PM »
I caught some pictures today of my bees (at least I figure they're mine :) ) and thought I'd share.

Hi Rex

Of course they are "your" bees!!  Ha Ha. Wonderful photos of the girls doing the things we love  for them to do. Thanks for sharing.Are the blackberries on your property?? You will get a fine crop. My  girls are out and about on the blackberries also and I was watching them today. We make lots of blackberry jam that we store all year so we really depend on the bees to do this work.

Take care
Annette

Yes, the blackberry is in my back yard, and has overgrown the whole side of the house.  It's really gotten out of control, so today I was going to hack it back a bit when I noticed the girls at work LOL!  So I'll let them have at it for a few more weeks.

Rex, those were really, really nice closeups, I love to see these pictures where you can see everything so clearly, thanks for sharing.  Have that wonderful and most awesome day, great health.  Cindi

Cool, I am putting in some blackberry bushes in a few days and can't wait until next year for all the great berries.
