Today I was inspecting the bees! This is always good fun as I get to poke around in the hive and see what they’ve been up to. Fortunately, they were in splendid form plus they’re storing well with some honey capped already. This dry, floriferous English spring has been perfect for the bees and I for one hope it continues! Although with perhaps a little bit more rain, but just a smidgen mind.
