Bee-house Is Down

Warning: lots of non-sewing pics ;-)

We used to have bees as long as I can remember. It was a hobby of my Oma and when we were kids we always wanted to be there when she was working at the bee-house.

This is my Oma - the pics were taken +/- 20 years ago infront of the bee-house with a honeycomb in her hand

the little smoker makes the bees leave the honeycomb and kinda calm them down

this a good friend with my Oma inside the bee-house

When my Oma got sick and died, my Dad took over the bees - well my interest was gone by that time because I started to show allergic reaction when I get stinged. My Dad used to have bees for 10 more years but then the regulation got tightened and he gave them up. The bee-house turned into a storage for junk...............last year I was going to paint the bee-house but it wasnt worth it anyomore, the boards were rotten and wood worms moved in also.

roof tiles are off

the lath followed the next evening

walls gone

an this is what it looks like now - the plinth still has to go

Saturday evening the bee-house was history..............bye bye bee house you are gone but not the memories - they will be treasured in my heart

I think I would have cried when it came down, but it seems like it was the right thing to do before it fell down. I am glad you have such wonderful memories and I love the photos of your Oma!
