On Tuesday, late afternoon, the husband was doing a bit of work at the apiary. Just adding another couple of supers for the bees to keep honey in. One of the hives is now five supers high so we reckon there's going to be a bumper honey harvest soon. With the experience gained in bee-keeping over the past few years, the husband has managed to keep the bees from swarming this year and has also managed to increase their numbers. Only another few weeks and we’ll extract the honey. I’ll try and get as many photos as possible to let you see the whole process.
Actually, I’m not brave at all; the drones have no sting. They were so tickly walking over my hand.
This morning I noticed this cheeky rabbit sauntering nonchalantly across the lawn and getting himself into the bed with the glauca. We have the garden well fenced - supposedly rabbit-proof - but they still manage to get in! He seemed to just be nibbling the grass round the side of the bed. Hopefully he didn't later tuck into the new geraniums!
Lovely!! Hope you enjoyed my little look at nature.
