176/365 . . . bees, originally uploaded by murpheyblue.

A couple months ago by husband and I went on a garden tour and one of the homes had a beautiful garden and tucked in the corner of the yard, had two hives of bees. I have a riduculous fear of flying bugs but, for some reason, the bees intrigued me and I told my husband we should look into getting some. He loves to garden and was smitten with idea and threw himself into investigating bees. So we are now the proud owners of a hive of honey bees.

These guys came from a nice man in a neighboring town who had some to give away. They are, my report, Italian, and very docile. They weren't bothered at all when we lifted the lid to snap a few pics. They should start producing honey by next spring.
