Amazing plummy raspberry coloured sky out there in the west - does that count for a Shepherd's Delight tomorrow?

Bee hives, all our bees are in bee hives, on combs, which are cells in wax.

Thankyou Dovefrom above, I have checked out the bumblebee conservation website & discovered that my bees are forest cuckoo bees. As you suggest, cowslip2, they will raise their young & leave. Meanwhile I will be ensuring any visitors to my plot steer clear of the compost area. The bees are very happy spending their days on the rosa rugosa which is flowering like mad at the moment. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your query nutcutlet but would be interested to know. are we able to post photos here?

Glad you've identified them and can work out a way of living together 

To post photos on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions to upload a picture - afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet

And the honey bees which swarm and are not taken by a beekeeper and re-hived ???

 What do you think happens to those? 

What happens is, they make nests in a hollow tree or compost bin or some other space, where they build their own honeycombs

Nothing here .................... yet 

 

Woody, I had a feeling at the back of my mind that consistency got more points than a possible lucky fluke   I used to be involved with a village show way back.  Wonderful events
