Spring is here

The harsh winter played havoc with Richard’s swing seat so it has been undergoing some major repairs. However on Sunday it was returned to its idylic location over looking Neen Savage. The cows all look pleased to see it back!

Sunday was also my first attempt at real beekeeping – a neighbour rang to say there was a swarm so I rang someone else! Fortunately Elizabeth was happy to come and collect it so I donned my suit and went along to learn. It was a great experience, not easy¬† – as the bees had all clustered around a gatepost in a hawthorn hedge. It took over an hour of coaxing to get them into Elizabeth’s travelling box and away!
