Re: Hello from PA
Welcome to Beesource!
If your parents property is close enough to vist without excessive driving, it sounds fine. You may be surprised at the variety of plants that bees forage on. Traditional "flowers" are not required - weeds and some trees are excellent forage. Bees forage over several thousands of acres, so whether or not you plant a few bushes won't make a big difference.
As your planning progresses, try to see a way forward for making your initial start with at least two hives. Your chances of success will be significantly better with two, as you can use resources from one hive to fix problems with another.
