sunday

This is the first time while living in Cairo to have an over-wintering beehive.  I visit the hive often and see what's going on.  Sit.  Watch the activity & number of bees arriving with pollen:  yellow, gray, & green.  Part of my routine also is to lift up the back of the hive to feel how heavy it is - over time this gives me a relative sense of how their honey stores are holding out.  The bees are working our camellias & it seems from the amount coming into the hive that there's a pollen flow happening now.

Still working on this shawl.
Nearing the end - ready to be done & working on something new.
