Smoker and hive in Queen's Park

We were being filmed for AFP by Leon – the camera man and at the same time I was also giving advice to a recently started beekeeping couple so I was hoping the bees would behave. And they did. They were so sweet. We had a good look around and not one bee stung anyone. It was a lovely sunny day so that helped. Hopefully will get a photo or two to put up on the site.

The shame was there was no honey for us from this hive this year. The bees have some but I will leave that for them. I did put on a tub of apiguard to keep the varroa in check – though this hive was really clear of the little pests.
