Some months ago, we discovered that a swarm of bees had taken up residence in one of our possum boxes in my garden. It has been fascinating to observe the activity of these busy and important creatures in our back yard.
Through these hot days however, the bees seem like they are regulating the hive's temperature by moving outside the box and have at times hung from the roof of the box and around the entrance.
I have loved these inhabitants in our garden and LOVE the beautiful honey smell that fills the air in that part of the garden.
......now to find out a way that they could share some of their precious honey with me...but then again I want them to feel safe and stay in our garden ....so will just admire them from afar!
