Beeeeeeeeeeees are coming

Its been a while since I updated my blog, I just don't know where the time disappears to, so I will try and keep it more up to date now things have settled down again here.

Hubby bought me a bee keeping kit for Christmas and a few weeks ago the hive arrived, we have pondered and had many a discussion as to the best place to site the hive and a place has been decided reached.

It may not look impressive from the photo, but I am so excited, hubby built a platform above the little shed in the side passage, and we have put

the hive up there, it is out of the way of everyone, he has fixed a ladder in place so I can access it, now I am not good on ladders and terrible with heights, so how I will fare we will have to wait and see.

The Bees should be ready for collection mid April, it will be great having them in place, and hopefully seeing them at work in the garden and in the hive, I still have join the bee keepers association so I must get a move on with that, I have read a few books but putting that into practise will be another matter.

Right I'm off things to do, I will try and get back tomorrow with an update of what is happening in the green house.
