Rain Again….. Hives a’ Heaving!

I have a new friend, grey cloud. Every week on my day off to do bees grey cloud likes to tag along, teasing and toying as to when the deluge will be; before I start, right in the middle of a hive inspection, or struggling back to the Jimny loaded down with gear! Grey cloud likes to make an impression and has become a good friend over the last 5 weeks!! I have asked that he might take a summer vacation, perhaps go abroad, see the world. I would welcome him back come autumn!!!
The bees are certainly packing in stores at the moment and the queens laying at full tilt. Making for heavy supers and bulging brood boxes. Mind you I am not complaining. In fact long may it continue!
