Beehive Huts


Read all about these Irish 'Beehive' Huts, which have nothing to do with bees at all, except the shape.

I would think you know this ... these are the 'cells' that monks lived in off the Weat coast of Ireland ant it's my feeling that the shape is to allow the high winds to move around them ... little bit of Irish aero-dynamics.

Hi, I just stumbled onto your wonderful blog. I have had a problem with bee; only to find out that my problem was really with yellow jackets. I am glad that I found you because I really want to get educated on bees. Up until, not so very long ago, every thing with a stringer was a bee to me. Check out by post "Bees on the Brain," and you will see. I am your newest follower, and I would love to invite you over to follow me, too. I would feel honored to have you on my list. Like I said, so happy I found you . . . you look like you have all the scoop on bees. Connie :)

I've added a couple of new, hopefully better, 19th-century illustrations too. Thanks for linking.
