We’ve spotted two colourful apiaries on hillsides during our travels but I wanted to find where the bees from the sunflowers came from.
Tonight we spotted the hives. They have an interesting porch extension at the entrance. Two have supers on and two don’t. I wonder why because the sunflowers seem to provide plenty foraging? Also, one of the hives has bees bearding on the outside, presumably to cool down – it was a hot one today!
If only I had the Italian to have been able to ask some questions!
