The Bees have Arrived

Great excitement – Michael arrived with a hive of bees on Sunday morning. Fortunately I had just finished serving breakfast so I quickly donned my suit and strolled up the paddock to show him their new home. He quickly unloaded the hive, complete with super – in his shirt sleeves! The guests thought they could see an angel in the field!

Later on Sunday afternoon my friend, Sandra, arrived so we could have a proper look at the bees. Gingerly we removed the super and surveyed the mass of bees inside the hive, all working happily. That was enough for our first foray into the world of beekeeping! We are hoping to open the hive again this evening to see if we can find the queen!
