Top Bar Bee Hive

I just dismantled its old support tower, then moved and redesigned then re-assembled it, and now making sugar syrup to pour onto the same red saucer in the pics that in the past lured bees here. A seashell and bit of concrete in the syrup act as feeding station "islands" for when the rim gets crowded. Seeing pics from when it was an active hive (I'd wanted one since I knew a beekeeper when I was ten in Michigan) has me determined to revive it this spring.
