The other day, all across the big lawn in front of the chateau there was a cloud of what I thought was gnats. P-Diddle came running up the stairs all out of breath and told me they were bees. I didn't believe him.

So I went outside. They were bees all right and they were swarming.

After about 30 minutes they all landed on a hedge right by our house. Here they are in a big bee lump.

An hour later a beekeeper came and scooped most of them into a big styrofoam box, waited a few minutes and then smoked the rest out of the hedge. He left after about 40 minutes. No more bees.

Way cool. I've never seen anything like that!
