Ever seen a black bee?

Thought you'd like to see the househive and the hidden black bee behind the door.

Bloodwood flow at the moment, so things are going well out here.  The last bloodwood flow was....years ago.

Very nice, most flamboyant..!
Your local OH&S officer may have something to say about the
safety-rail bar spacing on the verandah tho' :-)

Some people have all the talent.  Is the black bee alive or dead?

   G'day Leonie, good to see you posting again. Due to Skype problems I have lost your phone number. Have used Skype for a long time as my everyday phone book. Could you please PM me your current contact for a chat, even lost Glenys' number.

My wife wore a new beesuit to a halloween party and took a new smoker.  She would tell people she had "rare white bees" in the smoker.  She would open it quickly, of course to startle them and in the bottom of the smoker were the paper cutouts of two letter "B"s.
