One thing I may have mentioned in my very early posts is how Colleen and I really wanted to keep a honeybee hive up there at Tanglewood.  We actually tried it once but it did not take; we're pretty sure the poor bees were beaten up severely getting up our road and then we didn't do anything at all to protect them, so they were probably at the mercy of the ants once they discovered them while they were still weak.

Time passed.  The old hives were given away.

And then Colleen wanted to get bees again!  I was fine with that, so she ordered them way back in December, 2018.  They were supposed to arrive in early May of this year (2019).

We immediately had as many bouts of snow in a month as we'd had in the prior three!  So the shipping was delayed (since they would arrive in cold weather)....and then it got delayed again.....and then it got delayed again.....

BUT NOW THEY ARE HERE.  Tanglewood now has an official beehive, in as safe a spot as we could put it (out on the deck).  Colleen and a friend helped to put together a great video of the "unboxing" ceremony and it looks like it worked pretty well.  There are roughly 30,000 bees in a "nuc" (short for nucleus) in this shipment; bees are apportioned by weight  (since they certainly can't count the buggers).  A few were lose in shipment of course and I'm sure a few died en route, but as you can see from the video there are a heck of a lot of them. 

WHOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
