Wes and I were doing a routine evening walk around our garden when we peeked into a damaged shrub and were startled to find an active honey bee hive. The bees nearly covered the comb. The next morning in the cold weather half the comb was exposed, but the bees covered most of the comb again in the afternoon sunshine. Unfortunately, we’ll lose that welcome group of pollinators because, unprotected, they won’t withstand the winter. Maybe another swarm will find us next spring!
