Was going to use today to have last look in hives before I go away at the weekend for a week, but weather forecast for Norwich area was not good for today. Some rain I think they said but better for tomorrow.

Wrong. Lovely today. Could have done hives..... and tomorrow,,,???? yep, bet it rains...

Problem with Norwich is that it rains in one place but not around the corner...

Dont know that I need a hand but you're welcome to come along for a laugh. You might find the obs hive interesting.

if as most your bees are outside in normal hives, try buying a large cheap fisher mans umbrella as they are massive in size and allow you work under it with out the hive getting wet. its very usefull when you have a hive or two left to go through with a few spots of rain about

My hives are in a corner and it wouldnt be hard to put a sheet/tarp across the top of the wooden fence from one side to the other, or if I could get th ecampervan close to other sid eof the fence I could pull the awning out..
