Good news this week. Andy spotted our ladies carrying pollen into the hive during a visit to the apiary. What does that mean? Well, it is thought to be a sign that a colony is ‘queen-right’ – our queen may have found her way home after flying off in a right royal huff on Saturday. Bees bringing pollen is usually a sign that all is right with their world and that they are busily stocking up their food stores and getting on with business. Fingers crossed!
Meantime, I have been busy with a new venture – jewellery-making. First earring and necklace set – christened ‘Bee-dazzled’!
Those are stunning Emma. Are you selling them anywhere?
I hadn’t thought to sell but I probably have enough spares to make you a set if you like? What a brilliant result today, our flighty queen returns! Looks like we’ll need a new name for HRH, any thoughts? Cheers for MicMacs, I shall watch next week – treated myself to True Blood season 3 for my Big Week Off Work! ;o)
I can vouch for all that dazzles, the jewelley is truly bee-utiful!
Thanks, trying to find some beads and glitter to make dragonflies next!
