I found a place for 2 new hives, a short drive from my home yard.

Did you get any of those bees from you friend in Brazil?

Nice looking setup there. Congradulations.

Just curious, why did you choose a site away from you home? I have two remote sites. One is at large commercial tree farm. Lots and lots of flowering trees, especially crape myrtle. The other site is at the headquarters for the American Camelia Society. Lots of flowering camelias and daylillies. Steve

Good reason for a new site. Looks good, great photos. Steve
