Spring is here and so are the bees!

Last year James bravely transported a hive of bees in the back of a car all the way from Suffolk, which was a somewhat nerve wracking journey made worse by queues on the M25! Sadly the bees chose not to reside with us, though they kindly left us 18 jars of honey for which we were very grateful. James returned back last week with a look of uncertainty, delivering the news that an James beekeepinghour later he needed to meet a friend to gather a swarm of bees hanging from a bush in the village. 2 hours later he returned home looking far more pleased with himself, having gathered and re-housed his new swarm.  So they are now hopefully settling in to their new abode.
