Sometimes you have to take beauty where you can find it.
Look! My Hen and Chicks is blooming. (Are blooming?)
In any event, it has flowers.
I have never seen one of these bloom before.
It must be happy lodged in the Mexican wooden shoe.
And here is a view of the front of my weak hive. This is the one I added the queen to. I secured the queen cage to that frame with the help of 2 blue rubber bands. The bees do not appreciate having strange items (like rubber bands) in their hive. They chewed through them, dragged them down through 3 boxes full of frames, and chucked them out onto the porch.
