Moving in

We leave the travelling box on top of the hive so the few remaining stragglers will get the idea about where they are supposed to live.

Bee man then gives me my first ever woodwork lesson. It’s called assembling the frames for the hive. For someone who can’t put together IKEA flatpacks, he’ll have to be a pretty amazing teacher. Luckily for my bees he is.


I call Brian in Cape Town to tell him the good news that we are the proud ‘parents’ of 10,000 plus bees – he’s just as excited as me. Bummer he’s not here, though it means I’ll have to learn more myself.

Fall into bed exhausted.
