My Apiary – Ed Bennett

Last summer Barry Crossley made the great suggestion that we show pictures of our hives and apiaries in the the Newsletter. In the July 2020 edition we featured members’ apiaries. We have had lots of enthusiastic comments from members
wanting to see more.


As we all love to see how the other half keep their bees here are a couple more members’ apiaries for you to admire. Thanks to Ed for sharing.
So come on, why not join in and share a photograph of your hives or apiary with fellow
beekeepers?

Send your apiary images to agreenman219@gmail.com for inclusion in the next newsletter.

Ed Bennett our club secretary sent in this seasonal image of bees on a beautiful frosty day in February. The bees are no doubt clustered up keeping warm and cosy waiting for sunshine and spring so they can forage for pollen and nectar. The hives face southerly over a large field system somewhere to the west of Stafford. The low sun, hoar frost on the trees and grazing sheep in the distance complete this stunning tranquil winter view.
