Bee in N Georgia on a Blackberry flower

Lucky me - Understudy is in Atlanta and he came to my house for lunch today.  After all his fabulous adventures cutting bees out of boats, compost piles, rooftops, etc, he was very positive and enthusiastic about my two hives on my deck.  I took a picture of him in between them to prove he really did come to see me!  I have read and enjoyed his posts this whole year I've been on this site and it was so special to get to meet him in person.

good pic btw....you look like you keep very neat hives.  is that a deck attached to your house?  how does that work out for you?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Yeah, they are on my deck about 10 feet from the door to my sunporch.  I have a table on the sunporch where I eat many of my meals so that I can watch the bees as mealtime entertainment!  The only drawback is that at night sometimes they come inside my house through the dog door.  I let the dogs out the kitchen door and turn on the back light by my kitchen about 15 feet from the hives and the bees in the summer are drawn to the light as they are to the sun.  Then they come in on the backs of the dogs.

I try to do what randydrivesabus recommended to me - cover them with a glass, slide a postcard under it and return them to the outdoors, but often they commit suicide on the lights in cans on my den ceiling before I can accomplish that.

Well there goes the neighborhood. grin

I had a fabulous time with tillie. She was a completly wonderful to me and made me an incredible lunch. We chatting away for several hours and had a great time.
She has two awesome hive that make her award winning honey. She has been helping with the some of the new beekeepers through the local beekeeping course, which is just awesome. And she makes wonderful chocolate chip cookies.   grin

How a scruff like me ever got into a nice place like hers is a wonder.

I will post photos when I get back from Twt's place.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Linda, very nicely set up hives.  YOu are lucky to have them so close to be able to observe even during a food break. Good for you.  And especially nice that you and Brendhan got to get together and share some nice companionship.  It is a nice thing that people can share different aspects of their lives with each other as so done.  Best of awesome days.  Cindi

Well, we would have met Understudy too, if we'd made the connections sooner (we came home from our Georgia visit on Saturday, left on Thursday, got the PM on Sunday...)  Sad  It would have been nice.  I have a feeling we'll be going back down again for some bee lessons, maybe we'll meet more bee people then (where's TWT?)

I will definitely post earlier next time we go down there, and I'm sure we'll be going back to see John someday!
