I later put the bucket over the top of the hollow post to provide winter protection. The "official" bee hive top was added later. So far the bees have been totally ignoring the "official" part, preferring the funky old post. I believe the post is rotted out to below ground level. There are a few, heavily laden bees that enter to post at ground level.

I also tied up some rose bushes.
