A few months earlier we were attending a public ceremony sponsored by the city government. As the usual series of speeches were being done, my attention was captured by this big tree (calling Patrick Gozon to identify this tree). On looking closer, I saw that a big beehive was attached to one of the tree’s branches. The sheer size of the hive is evidence enough that those bees have been living there for quite some time already. I entertained the idea of throwing stones at it but it was, I think, way too high for stones to reach it. Better not disturb them.
