"Bee"ing Busy!

Well, I am home from North Carolina. What a whirlwind trip. Route 81 south through Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia (oh my that state takes forever) and into North Carolina. On the way through North Carolina, I exited to find Brushy Mountain Bee Farm. Up and up a mountain road I drove and at the very top......I turned onto Bee Keeper StreetAnd headed back to the Store. There they had my order ready to go...So I loaded up my car and took off for Charlotte.By the time I was ready for the drive home, I had added an 8 X 10 rug on top of this pile of hive materials. I just happened to find the perfect rug for our loft at Home Goods. I had a great weekend with Andy and headed home to build my hives.
I added finials to the roof for decoration....And here is one of the five finished hives. Now I have to paint them white and then I am ready for my new bees.

I love the hive. The top is very impressive.

I don't know much about bees, but if you have the right type of hive,do they just come, or do you have to populate it somehow?

Wow! Fun times you are having with your projects! Will be looking for what else you do with these bee hives.

Oh my. I have total hive envy here! I want to do bees so bad. I need to get things in order so I can get some. I saw a bunch of bees in my sage bush when I went out to the garden the other day and it made me wish I had a hive there in the garden.
