And then there was one. After Koko, who joined our clan before we bought the house, the bees were the next 'pets' we got.
Punita had set up three separate beehives a year ago. They survived a hurricane, well a tropical depression storm, but two of the hives succumbed to mites over the first winter. In spring, Punita divided the left over, hopefully mite hardy, hive into two. And then there were two.
Hopefully, they are doing what they do so we can get some honey this summer and fall.
