Painting the hives to match.

April 18, 2013






Oh what a relaxing, yet productive day we had yesterday.   My young friend stopped by , just as the sun broke through the clouds.  I am sure that isn’t a coincidence.  She convinced me to abandon my busy errands.  What a lovely idea.  I pulled out the unfinished beehives which needed to be painted before Friday’s bees show up.  One hive is a soft lavender and the other a light yellow green (much lighter than the picture appears).  I am painting the new ones different colors because last year it was helpful to talk of the Silver or Copper Kingdom hive.  The new hives have the same roofs so I needed a different way to describe them.  I suppose I could have just numbered the hives … but that seems rather boring, doesn’t it?


So we sat and talked while my kids played.  The sun and blooms were beautiful.    The cherry blossoms are just all a flare.  The daffodils nodding as if they enjoy our conversation and heartily agree.  The peach trees  are a few days away from taking over where the cherry trees will fade.   The apple trees and tulips are right behind them and I am so excited to see all my grapevines in bud.  We had a nonsensical dinner of apple cake and grapes.
