Nesting Bees in my Backyard – Finally!

This post contains 5 photos.

Who doesn’t like fruit? I love it! And even more when they are nice not only for the taste, but also for the eyes. Today there are ways to mechanically pollinate flowers, but it is just not the same. Bees do the job much better than anything we built ever will.

A while back, I bought a bee house and placed it in my backyard. I wasn’t hoping for much, to be honest, but was surprised today. Here is why:

This is the house.


While I went for a glass of water downstairs, something caught the periphery of my sight. When I looked, there it was! A bee going in to one of the little bamboo cells. This was the first


And this was the second.


I was so happy that they made their nests.. the summer will be bright! I have a pear and two plum trees, next summer, if the bees continue to nest, there will be even more fruit for my brews! Below is my pear cider tree…


And this is my plum wine and mead tree!


This just brightened my day, I must be honest! I love seeing nature doing its job, so at least for my own backyard, I will try and preserve it!
