My bees arrived unannounced last Saturday afternoon.
Evidently the overnight rainstorm encouraged them to rearrange themselves.
Austin is wondering exactly how Uncle Bubba talked him into this.
A girl in polka-dot farm boots called to say, “Mama Jan, we’re coming to catch those bees”.
A little sugar water is supposed to make bees happy.
6:30 is pretty early for bee catching.
Austin had never fancied himself as a bee catcher.
Slow is good.
Camera man ready.
Sugar cookies are good when you’re catching bees.
Okay. Okay. Okay.
Here comes a scary part.
Clipping off the little branches.
Considering the big branch.
Somebody’s gotta do this.
GO AUSTIN! Put those bees in the box!
See Austin run. Austin runs fast. Go Austin go.
Some bee catchers listen to Joe Scruggs CD’s while they wait for honey.
Austin is being ex*em*pla*ry (ig-zem’pl.-re)
Bee box filled.
Gotta find our queen.
Austin’s choosing a different career.
Helping those little critters into their new home.
Noisy. Noisy. Noisy.
Queenie? Where are you?
Her Majesty, the Queen Bee.
Scoot em on in there.
Mama Jan loves honey.
Sweet little honey bee crawling on my neck.
The end of our beeing morning. And all of God’s creatures are special.
