Like Mick this weather is causing me sleep loss- either sunny but barely into double figures or just lashing down .
I was up at 6 this morning couldn't get back to sleep
Theyre gagging to go most have thrown up qcs like a pair of marigolds.
I studied BBC weather for the postcode and the least - shite weather for the next ten days was this afternoon
Bull by the horns and got going.
Was confronted by this when we got there
My one decent rockstar
colony on the off.
Million bees in the air
13c with 12 mph wind.
They must have checked the forecast too.
I managed to do a brutal cowboy split but halfway through the missus who was sat in the van started shouting
Another hive coated in bees .
Attended to those while the first lot repopulated both boxes
More shouting ,another hive had sprouted a beard.
I ended up doing all of them.
Except the two that had already gone
Cant wait to retire - my employer doesnt regard beekeeping as frontline activity.
