Great pic, so do all the hives out there get their own parasol?

Same spot when I started beekeeping with only 1 hive. I know it looks much better when it is green.

The first year of beekeeping I was a mess with worry about everything. When we started having those 100 plus days, I truly worried the bees would not make it. So gave them the parasol for shade. Now I know better how strong and resilient they are so I do not baby them anymore. Also I give them those wonderful top ventilated inner covers to keep them cooler.
