When it doesn’t rain this is what a Saturday afternoon’s beekeeping looks like.
Emily and I now have four colonies at Perivale apiary: Queen Myrtle’s hive has almost completed the Bailey comb change after a late start in spring; Rose’s colony has been successfully transferred from a nuc into a hive; the second nuc is building up nicely; and we saw a new virgin queen in our hive from Charles. We closed up and left her to fly free.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s short snapshot – much more next week.
I love the music and the way all the clips join together. Beautiful!
And you see how I cleverly filmed you and the bees without actually ‘filming you’ 😉 Enjoy your weekend, Em x
Loved the video. It was great to share your bees.
Thanks, I’d love to see a video tour of the wildlife around your garden!
I’d love to see one too. I’m still in the U.K. on granny duties but missing the garden and its residents.
Beautifully done – thanks for sharing.
Hi Mark, just spotted your comment hidden away here! Thanks very much and I hope your bees are doing well 🙂
Apian-tastic film, EST. Beautifully put together. RH
Thanks RH – I’d love to make a living out of filming bees, and beekeepers!
Thanks! BTW You may be interested to know a new weird Horniman monkey is currently visiting RCP http://www.rcplondon.ac.uk/race-mankind – I call him ‘Bones’
I’ve got three colonies now, but expect that there will be very little honey this year whilst they build up in size…
May your new queens mate well and be fertile for several years!
Long live our queens! And may they give us some honey … x
Enjoyed your video, very well done. Thanks for posting it.
Thanks 🙂 It’s been a busy summer and my SLRs getting a little neglected, although fun what you can do with an iPhone and iMovie templates!
You have been nominated for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. You may pick it up at: http://chasingtheperfectmoment.com/awards/
If you choose not to that’s okay. Just know you were thought of!
That is so kind, thank you! And sorry for the delay in replying to you. I’m going through a very challenging and worrying time at the moment and this is really appreciated! x
I will keep you in my thoughts Emma. Take care!
