Ive just got myself a hive and a colony of bees, they arrived yesterday. Looks like there settling in ok.

The Master Bee keeper featured in that series: John Everett of Applebees is one of my mentors, and lives just 5 miles or so down the road from here.
.

I only started Beekeeping last year and together Keith and I now have 20 hives between us.

Hi All

I dont want to bore you with a load of pictures, but I thought this one was a good one of a drone, the one on the left with the big eyes, alongside the worker bees.
