Bee Houses

A quick diversion: During a short trip home, my father, a beekeeper for as long as I can remember, decided it was time to try something new with his hives to see if he could get them to last through the winter. This year, we’re adding color! The thought is that darkly colored hives, instead of the standard clean white, would absorb more of the sun’s heat during the long Maine winters, giving the bees that extra edge they needed.

Inspired by the task, Claire and I enthusiastically set to. This year’s bees will be living in style! I’ll be anxious to see if it works!
