The hens were in the field and in gathering them in, I heard an ominous buzzing from the hedge at the same time as T said "Ooh there's a swarm". Arghghghhgh dammit! I galloped in, donned beesuit, grabbed small hive and plonked bees in. Took off beesuit, shouted copiously at the children and roared off to Eastbourne.
Got back to find bees back in hedge. Plonked bees in small hive again and stuck it under the hedge.
Went for cup of tea with Laura, came back and there were still loads of bees flying around and I discovered another swarm in the hedge outside the back door:
Meanwhile I had checked the other hives to work out who had swarmed and decided to unite two other hives so there were bees absolutely everywhere:
|Seriously, bees everywhere|
|Waste of time that was|
I am absolutely exhausted! :-)
