No that is not a funny looking banana! One of the bee hives in the big butternut swarmed tonight and ended up in the smaller butternut by the deck. A local bee keeper says they have sent scouts out looking for a new home. Hope it is one of the hollow old fruit trees. Time will tell. Was a bit of a shock to look up while having dinner and see them. We had seen them earlier and wondered what was going on with all the bees flying around. Now we know. Happy 4th!
