Time bees

hiveIn August of 2010 I found a feral honeybee hive here. In 2011 and 2012, I didn’t notice any activity here at all, although I have to say my checking in was sporadic at best — Green-Wood is a big place and my routes didn’t always go past this tree — but still, I don’t think that original colony made it. But there’s a colony here now.

    There is a bee tree right along the trail I run. I don’t think most people even notice it since the entrance is at ground level.

      Yes, there are so few bee trackers these days. There was a ground-acess hive in another tree in Green-Wood some years ago, but as the tree was dead, the cemetery took it out. A good reminder that the cemetery is not a woodlands.
