cement hive stands

we lined up ten cinder blocks to make five hive stands

kwao mixed the cement in a sand-dirt pit he made

pouring in some water


for good consistency 

shoveling the cement into the cinder block

using the rebar to pound the cement around the other
Kwao smoothing out the cement with his fingerscompleted hive stands that need to dry over two or so days
afterwards, kwao took emmanuel, melchizedek, joshua and i for a ride to visit the baby swarm we caught the other day. they seem to have made themselves at home with great flight-path traffic and guard bees keeping watch.
