I've been on the 1st part of a bee keeping course today...

...the second part is tomorrow. Absolutely loved it Very Happy
It's at Over the Rainbow's (Marie's) place http://forum.downsizer.net/viewtopic.php?t=69286 and who else should be there, but TTouch Homestead and her husband!

A great day. I can't wait to get started at last...this has been a long time coming.

My brain is recovering from the amount of information relayed, but the handouts are brilliant reminders...so far it has been great! Now I understand more about the bits and pieces, and how the bees use them, it seems much less daunting Laughing

Meeting M-J is a bonus Cool

Another two struck by the bug Very Happy.

Warning: beekeeping can take over your life.

I have been told I have over thirty colonies at present. Surely not Embarassed .....

It's good to learn as much as possible on the subject.
Just remember it doesn't have to be so complex or expensive.

Met the bees today. Very exciting...stop me rushing into it someone eh?!

Anyhow, we got to see lots of queen cells, some capped...AND we saw the queen too...so it was a real interesting situation. The beekeeper is going to keep us posted on what he is going to do next Shocked
