Just out of interest, do all beeks like honey ??? I love it :drool5:..Also the smell of a warm super with its honey and cedar scents need to replicated by Glade or suchlike...I would sit a super with its frames on the side in my lounge but think Mrs A. B 's may not agree:rofl:

Lots and lots
given a chance, my daughter (who also has a hive) would eat me out of house and home...

The smell is irresistable, but can't eat too much as it is a little sweet for me...

I quite like the smell....... although when extracting even that gets a bit OTT.

I don't actually "like" Honey..... I don't actively dislike it but for me a little goes a long way...

I started last year so got a few jars off and when I tasted it I thought it was very nice Honey..... and was very chuffed* when everyone I gave it to (or offered tasters) said how good it was....

I took a few more jars off this spring and same again....

No doubt when I extract in a week or so I'll be equally proud* but I am happy to keep the girls and possibly expand a bit over a few years just for the interest (and brilliant prezzies)...

* NB I am not sure why I am chuffed/proud for the ladies work cos its not as if I do much!!!
