They called it "Scott's Bee Farm." Which is just as fine a name as any. I hosted a field trip for the Middle School's special needs class today in my bee yard. This is the school in the city I police. I was able to teach them in class one of the days I worked security about bees. I thought it was awesome having a big yellow school bus in my drive personally! I was very impressed with the vocabulary their teacher has taught them over the past month. They enjoyed a walk through the wild flowers in the field. Saw bees working hard on the asters and goldenrod collecting pollen and nectar. Butterflies and other pollinators were hard at work also. The numerous other insects like crickets and hoppers were overpowering even the handsome level of speech 20 young children can produce! I opened up the yellow top bar and brought a frame of bees and capped honey to them to see up close. And, a very rare treat, the queen made an appearance! All of the children were able to see her up close which was very cool! See a photos of her below. I took a top bar full of capped honey back to the house and cut chunks of sweet honey comb for all to enjoy. MMMM, GOOD! A couple young men said they wanted to keep bees someday. I was very honored and humbled to teach the children about the honey bee. And, no stings!! :grin: This is what it's all about and makes all the hard work with keeping worthwhile.
