The sun has come out and my bees are flying out and about. Sadly they missed the blossom on the apple tree next to the hive and their favourite globe thistles are only now beginning to sprout their little blue spikes. Hopefully there is plenty of forage nearby so I can ween them off their sugar syrup when this batch runs out.
Hello, for many years I have been a passionate gardener and have encouraged wildlife into my urban garden. Three years ago I joined a Beekeeping Association. Last year I installed a beehive in my garden and started this blog to record my experiences.
