I have been outside this afternoon in my garden, building hive parts that I bought from my trip to Thornes’ new place last November. It was good to start this after all the cold weather. I did pop down the garden (a few times) to see if any bees were flying and about 2pm some of the little darlings emerged “to do their business” excuse the pun! But by 3.30pm they were all back indoors.
