Does anyone have one of these?  What do you think of it?  Can one make a suitable substitute?

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Solitary Pollen Bee Nest from Lee Valley Empty Bee Homes!

I don't remember this post, but am glad it is re-visited! The houses are cute, but Mason bees will come! Just nail some cheap pine boards in a dry place. Then say "I sure hope no bees make a home here!"  They will come.
