Peckover House Garden (1 of a few)

If you’d have looked very carefully at yesterdays image of the flower bed at the far end of the garden at Peckover House you might just have seen this pair of Bee hives tucked away at one end of the flower bed but conveniently situated for the Bees to collect the nectar from the flowers growing all around.

That's wonderful! One of my bee images has made it into the 2016 pollinator calendar for the Center for Food Safety. I'm a big fan of bees!
Brian Walbey: Well done Elizabeth, I do hope you will tell us all and show us your photo that's been accepted.
the bees sure have enough nectar
Brian Walbey: yes plenty for them to settle on in that garden.

The one on the right is less traditional in shape
Brian Walbey: Indeed, a most unusual shape.

Sorry! Don't know what happened there!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your multi comment Ray smile It's not often one sees bee hives in private gardens over here.

Oh, I like the bee hives! I wish you a sunny day - like here!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. We have a sunny afternoon but this morning was pretty dire, and we are away in Lincolnshire from tomorrow until Friday and the forecast isn't very good at all.
They have their own all you can eat buffet Brian
Brian Walbey: Plenty for them to choose from there Bill.
Ray is really excited about your bees! I have never seen hives set directly in a flower garden like this.
Brian Walbey: It's not often one sees bee hives in private gardens over here.
Bees are doing a great and essential job, aren't they Brian?
Brian Walbey: They certainly do Richard, and there was plenty of flowers for them to choose from in that garden.
That looks like a very good idea and lots of lovely honey too.
Brian Walbey: It's not often one sees bee hives in private gardens over here is it.
Busy bee corner!

Now I bet the honey from these bees tastes wonderful; I'd probably bar a jar to have on my porridge each morning.
