Thank you Phil, 

This information is a great resource for a new-bee bee-keeper. I really enjoyed the apiary visit last Saturday and gained a better insight into the workings of bees, what to look for and hive management. I am even more obsessed now, so thank you for your generosity in sharing the knowledge and the wonderful hospitality both you and Lyn showed us.

Many thanks. Di

I had a great morning.  Met new beekeepers, saw all the different hives in different stages, and saw some pests.  Questions asked and answered,  saw a queen capture. Very nice honey cake and honey tasting.
