At about 2:00pm today, I looked out of the office window and thought "What the heck is THAT?" Upon closer inspection, it was apparent that a swarm of bees had arrived in our back garden. They swarmed around the first redwood tree and gradually settled on a branch, where they currently sit like a thick cuff around the wood. I am told by SS2 (who says he watches a lot of National Geographic), and also a friend who knows about these things, that the bees will probably stay for a day or two and then move on in search of a more permanent residence.
