Above our (obviously not manicured) front yard, was the threat of a thunderstorm this past Thursday night. Although I could hear it in the distance, it did not end up passing over us here on Farmette 1769.

This was what our honey bees were doing at the time. It was about 8pm, so they were coming in for the night. It was hot and they were hanging out on their porch again.

This morning, I took the entrance feeder mason jar off its base. What I normally do is grab the base of the jar and throw it into the grass; since there are always a few bees hanging on. Then I just retrieve and fill it with sugar water.

This video is a quick up close view of the entrance, from within the path that our honey bees take in and out – Front Left. I could not stay there long, since they guard it well.

Lastly, this is a peak inside the bluebird house on the way back inside. The babies are almost ready to head out into the big world!

Please join us next week for another addition of Friday Night Bee. It may be delayed until Saturday morning. I’ve been really tired on Friday night for weeks now. If that continues, I will have to change the name from FNB to SMB.
