After a relaxing afternoon tea we spent a couple of hours enjoying classical music. The program was entertaining with a mixture of orchestral music, piano, a string quartet and a choir. Although my daughter's both play violin and Grace the piano as well, classical music is not my favourite genre. I did enjoy the break from my usual mix of country and 1980s treasures.
Since we started keeping bees, I have been more aware of bees in general. I often spot hives whereas before I probably would not have noticed them. When my son, Tom, did his first bout of fire fighting training two weeks ago, I noticed a hive in the carpark and it was still buzzing away busily on the weekend when he completed his training. It is a litle hard to tell but there are bees entering and exiting the small gap in the wood.
This hive is in this tree right in the middle of a carpark. It is less than a metre off the ground and the bees seem completely happy to be there. The tree doesn't seem to mind being in the middle of the asphalt either despite its rather tragic haircut.
