Hive two 2018



Hive two 2018

23rd January. First visit of the year. It was a warm day getting briefly to 12 degrees centigrade and the bees were flying. I took the opportunity to re-organise the sticky fondand on the crown board - see video
February 17th. More fondant had been eaten - so more given. - see video
