PepperBush is blooming.

This is probably the biggest bloom before the Red Maples in Dec.
 The Pepperbush is a very invasive plant...but the bees need all the food they can get so we don't cut them back until after the bloom.
 There is a bee keepers just down the road so I don't know if these are his or mine.
 Just look at all the cannot see them but there are bees all over it.
 These little gals work harder than most people.
 My "blue" hive is working on drawing out wax in the 2nd super....the other two are both full. I don't know why but the blue hive always stores more honey than the "pink" hive.
 Beautiful little bee
 These bushes are about 20 ft tall

 this is looking down our road...they have almost grown it closed....After the bloom Jim will be cutting it back.
That is all Pepper bush and there is more on down the road and surrounding area.
