Bees and Bunnies - and progress on Holton House

Duncan is enjoying his new found frolicking freedom every evening with the chickens (his new girlfriends).
These were taken in Beekeeper Daughter's back yard, where the chickens are given free range for a time each day before being put back in their coop.

She also has a splendid garden (and a very GREEN THUMB).  I thought you would also enjoy seeing a 'drinking fountain' for the beehive ... and how the bees carefully position themselves on a small rock or floating sponge to drink.  The water has to be shallow so if they fall in, they will not drown in the 'deep' water.

 He is becoming very attached to his 'Bunny Camp' owner/"Bunny Spa" lady (Beekeeper Daughter) ... and even hops over to her and nudges her leg every now and then.

                                                                                   * * * * *
Holton House now has exterior trim being added.  The house is also receiving plumbing work inside and some of the heating/cooling ducts are being added.  A few glimpses of the exterior trim - pretty, don't you think?

                                                                                      *  * * *
I will close this blog entry with photos of some of the jars of honey that was bottled from the extracting done earlier this week and part of last week (see prior blog).  The labels are not on the jars yet, but this was bottled this morning ..... I love the way it looks!  Beekeeper Daughter also is making a big jar of ice water with strawberries and sliced lemons.  Refreshing for these hot humid days.
