I love what people do to their apiaries and I’m always delighted by the creative ideas that become reality. This unique sign greets visitors to the apiary of Morris and Rita Ostrofsky in Eugene, Oregon. Morris writes:
The sign started with a trip to the Oregon coast where my wife and I looked for just the right driftwood. We then laid out the words, I glued and screwed them together and stained and preserved the wood. Then I drilled holes for the wire supports and we hung the sign over the entrance to the apiary.
We love the double meaning of sign. The significance of bee space is obvious but it also references the 3/8th inch bee space within the hive. In addition it indicates that this a place for both both bees and beekeepers.
Good job, don’t you think? Now I’ve got to start thinking…
