Sitting in the garden now the proud owner of two nucs, curtesy of Ian. Fantastic watching them get used to their home. All the waiting and classes over the winter worth it. Seems like having kids all over again.

I am a bee owner now and looking forward to cracking the beekeeping bit!!

The day gets better, just spike to my mentor to arrange to transfer to hoves and fit commercial frame adaptors and we are now going to one of his out spirits. Beekeeping starts now.
Cutnrun if it is ian of this forum of the same. Fantastic chap really helpful and supportive. PH good to touch base and thanks for the congrats.

Need a lie down a bit hyper at the moment. Girls out having a good look around and the sun is shining.

sadly, no more!
Congratulations and good luck :hurray:

Just one word of warning - as a second year beek, I now know enough to know how little I know :svengo:

But then I am hopeful that in twenty years or so (should I be spared that long), I might begin to get to grips with it all

Update

Girls now transferred to new hives. Adaptors fitted and even spotted one of the queens. All very nice and gentle long may they stay like it. Shattered now have been a gibbering Hyper wreck all day. At least it looks like they have turned in for the night.

Whatever happens now this day is one to remember.
