|I was delighted with this shot of a 'buff-tail' - scruffy |
gear and a huge dose of luck!
|Flowering cherry buds opening.|
|Just showing off now. Primrose with early morning dew.|
|T-McC cracks open his healthy hive.|
|Our own hive is not a pretty sight - dead mouldy bees (top left) |
and empty brood (dark brown) with mouldy cells (bottom right).
|A lovely neat "brood pattern" surrounded by honey |
but unfortunately no brood!
|Lovely heavy frames of honey - we guess the girls won't |
need it now!
|These frames should be covered in bees - there are a hundred|
here if you are lucky. It's not a happy story.
|Not a queen to be seen|
