Our beekeeper José added a new box for our growing bee community.  The three-story tower on the right is the one they're currently occupying.  At some point he may get a second queen to start the other hive (the short one on the left with the green top). 

The bees seem to be doing well, and José thinks we may have a first honey harvest in a month or two. 

Our neighbor planted some clover especially for the bees, but they have been disappointing him so far.  We've noticed them a little bit in our trees, but otherwise only see them if we watch them coming and going from the hive.  The bees come in and out through the slot along the bottom of the hive (see the close-up below).
