  2. Re: May i get an identification on this bee friendly tree?

    Such a glorious color!

    My thanks to all, and the garden blogger expressed his or her gratitude as well:

    "Thank you and your bee friends!

    (Definitely not a California bay tree. Those are so...
  3. Re: May i get an identification on this bee friendly tree?

    Oh, JWChesnut, i see your additional links, and that bark close-up really seals it, doesn't it. That patterning is just sublime. I'll bet it looks gorgeous in winter.

    I'll explore the links...
  4. Re: May i get an identification on this bee friendly tree?

  5. Re: May i get an identification on this bee friendly tree?

    Thanks for the response, BeeBop. I love the sort of "flakey" character of the bark ... i hope someone knows what it is!

    Re: Ball of Bees

    I always thought they were acting as plumb-bobs for the purpose of building combs along a straight vertical line. But i may be wrong about this. :)

    Vance G ... brilliant advise! And i have nothing but admiration for the composure of the beekeeper. I'm not sure what i would have done, but i'm fairly sure that, "Can i help you," wouldn't have...

    Re: Treated first time today

    No no! Not at all, Harley Craig. Just a general statement, based on past personal experience. Nothing at all to do with you. I should have been more clear (or better yet, resisted pressing the...

    Dkofoed, my husband and i are in the exact same situation. We were thinking that if our hives survived the winter, we'd re-queen in the Spring with a treatment-free, "local" queen. But on my...

    Barry Digman, thank you very much, and what a wonderful link! I've never seen that particular version before, and you kind of can't help but to get a little choked up at the end of it. So poignant...

    Good morning, Phoebee, and you're very kind. Thank you!
