I was in the fields with the bees at 8 o clock this morning. It was lovely and sunny and the bees were already out busy. It was a wonderful sight. But the season is over and that leaves me feeling sad. There was little to do, though I always find a few precious moments to stand and watch the bees coming and going; I could happily while away the hours doing this/(nothing! but don’t tell the wife!).
The rest of the day was spent sorting and tidying spare equipment and getting supers ready to freeze before storage. I am lucky that I am allowed to use our chest freezer for this purpose every autumn.
