Neighbor bees

Somewhere within four miles of me, someone has some hives of honey bees. I know this, because there are honey bees on my blooming shrub, and my bees are loaded up in their hives, somewhere between here and Statesville, getting ready for their journey to my backyard.

These girls are neighbors, visiting for a favorite springtime snack. I was delighted to see dozens of these neighbors poking about the little green flowers, making themselves very much at home. Perhaps my girls will visit flowers in their back yard sometime soon.
