QB's sister came to stay - she's left now so, back to business!
Yesterday QB did a full apiary inspection. Big sigh of relief as it looks as if "Stone" Q is laying. More later - weather too good to miss finishing prepping the veg. garden for Sweetcorn and Leeks, also for Globe Artichokes.
All Queens safely at home and laying. Blue Queen in Red colony
has slowed down though. Will they supersede her? -
or should QB step in?
Colonies above left to right Yellow 'H', Red, Blue/Yellow, Silver, Stone.
