A winter visit- pics and update

Hi folks! I took a walk out to the hive after we had (more) snow out here on the East coast. The landing board had a nice layer of snow on there and I was pleasantly surprised that the bees had shoveled their walk! 🙂

What? No way! More?? Me?

Ok folks.. ‘when it rains it pours’ I guess.. Since I wrote that upbeat last message, I have survived completely unexpected surgery. (!!!) Completely unexpected. A visit to a specialist for one thing turned into an early morning scheduled surgery two days later.

Urban Swarm in London and a quick update

Hello all! Quick shout out to you all. I am alive and well – I know it’s been a while since the last SBK update. Between getting the tree cleared in the back yard, nasty weather and an emergency root canal (ouch) life has taken some weird turns recently. I’ve taken plenty of pics of […]
