Good Fences

Go to this link to show your good Fri.fences..

My parents had this old fence around their yard for some time, & their neighbor put up a chain link fence for her dogs & asked them to take their fence down. So my husband & I took the fence & put about our veg. garden. Well, I added gourds too to the garden, & after some time this gourd or 2 grew into the fence. It remained there a long time. One year honey bees decided that they were a good place to winter over- note a hole on the clear left side of one. We worried about them overwintering, & our local honey man told us to find someone with hives, take a vacuum cleaner with a clean bag & suck them up & try to release them to a hive. But they really didn`t think that they would survive. We didn`t try, but we were always looking to see what was living in the gourds for some time afterwards.

How very interesting that the bees would make a home inside the gourds on the fence.
