Shhhh...don't tell Pete, but there is more to come!
Secondly, an apology. I have been reading your blogs at work and commenting away, until I realised today that my comments weren't showing on your posts. So bear with me while I try to work out what has gone wrong, but I am reading them all and thoroughly enjoying them.
Tanya - Actually it was a Vax with a very long hose and a large water bottle half way along the hose. Amazing to see. I will post a picture soon of the swarm box, it is now sitting on the allotment.
Kay - They made their way in through an open office window at the back of the jewellers. I don't know what attracted them though.
Diane - I amazed myself, but you do feel very protected in those bee suits. I can't wait to get my own honey.
Margy - I have been stung by a wasp before, but never a bee. My beehandler says it is about confidence and being nice to the bees. I am trying to take his word for it!
Kellie - Not really brave, some would say mad!
SFT - Wasps are a whole different ball game, I would definitely stay away from them. I wish more people would grow flowers for the bees, we need to protect them more.
