in the dark

This has been a quiet season of hidden work...a place of abiding in the quiet, even the dark...jewels being found in a mine. But, life emerges none the less.

These are some pictures of our new colony of bees and the beautiful art they have created since we were privileged enough to receive them in the middle of April. They are at work on 6 different combs. So much is done in the dark...

10,000+ bees at work
