Gary told me to leave the bees alone for a week or so - it's hard to keep away. I want to take a peek!
The photograph shows Demeter later on in the week with some bees on the landing board taking a look-see around their new home. It had been raining so much that I put boards on top of the hives, held down with bricks, to make a little rain shelter. The fence is made of bamboo and it there to keep Emma the Airedale from getting too close. In her younger days she hunted bees for sport!
