Stepping from the elevator on the SLC library's fourth floor, a spiral staircase catches the eye, as does the window above, or it might be what's seen through the window.
As you can see there are two active beehives of beautiful golden wood. The garden on the roof of the library benefits from the bees, as does the surrounding neighborhood gardens. What a fun sight to see the bees busily doing they're buzzing business.
Any time I see bees they remind me of Kim and her love of the little buzzers. Our garden is always humming with their sound, as they travel from blossom to blossom gathering the pollen within.
They fly with intent through the squash blossoms, flashing by so quickly it's rare to capture one in a picture, and never bother a hand reaching to harvest the fruit.
While patience is not my virtue, and the harvest of veggies my main intent, a bee may become so heavy with the yellow gold, it can hardly fly. This bee seemed to be redistributing his load before flying off to find the hive.
Bees, with their purpose in life, have a way of bringing back happy. We need to do all we can to protect and promote their place in our world.
