Hives & Dandelions

Three of Brookfield Farm’s colorful hives in a bee yard near Maple Falls, Washington. Every box used is a “western”. Beekeeper Karen Bean uses only one size of box for all of her work. The different colors help the bees find their own hive and Bean likes lots of colors and gets board painting the same old color year after year.
