The picture with the privet blooming comes up as the 4th picture of the series of photos in post 17 with the opening comment "My porch today- how I store combs."The picture with that privet blooming was taken in June - when the privet is blooming in WI.
My stuff out on the porch in spring/summer not just being stored, it also per-annualy drags down swarms.
My rain soaked porch - was pictured yesterday.
But it makes sense it was taken in June not October.
