This is my first year at having beekeeping. I have just given them their 2nd bowl of sugar syrup to increase the production of young as when there is a shortage of food during the winter months this is a good food source to keep them going and to feed to their young. I checked on them yesterday and it looks as though there are triple the amount of bees there now than what I had several months ago. My parents are coming over next month from NZ to stay with us for 2 weeks and whilst here my dad will show me how to take some of the honey.

Welcome Shelli glad to have you stop by and show us your hive.

Very pretty hive and I'm not showing it to my husband he might decide to pretty ours up more.

Hope you stop by and chat with us again and do tell us how the honey harvesting goes.
