Well, this is my first try to post a photo from my blog. If it works, I'll send a few more. If not, it's back to the drawing board!

That was disappointing! I was so looking forward to seeing your bees. That said, no criticism aimed at you as I wouldn't have a clue how to post a photo and don't have the means to take and down load one anyway.... it makes a bit of a mockery of me being site admin doesn't it!!! Shocked

For example,

ie this link, which is for people other than you :

http://www.susanchernakmcelroy.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/DSCN0775.jpg

rather than the one you tried, which I think is your internal "bloggers" link.

BTW, the whole blog entry, which is very good, is here : http://www.susanchernakmcelroy.net/on-swarms-and-summertime-dreams/#more-1682

Okay, Adam, next question: How do I make the photos a bit smaller, AND, how would I post more than one at a time??

I know Phil explained this, but I need to be told from six different people before it sinks in....!

Thanks Adam for facilitating that.

Sue, your blog is poetic and colourful and just paints such a wonderful picture and your comment abut the neighbours wondering what you are up to crawling about on the "magic carpet" did make me laugh. If only they knew!
Now I really want to come and visit!

I love the fact that you can kind of play spot the hive! Initially you just see one, then another and anther. I am guessing the final one (the warre) is against the back wall, behind the one with the corrugated roof.)

Thanks so much for posting them.

Thanks! It is fun to share these with my friends across the big waters! I'm trying to make "gobsmacked" a slang word here. It is so great a term!

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
