Barry Crossley made a really great suggestion to me recently. He said,
‘I think that it would be a good idea if we shared photographs of our own apiaries with other club members via the Newsletter.’
Well, we are are all nosy and like to see how the other half live so here are a few members apiaries to be going on with.
Why not share a photograph of your apiary.
Send to agreenman219@ gmail.com for inclusion in the next newsletter.
So here are a few to get us started:
Above is Barry’s Apiary picture captioned:
‘What started off as four hives just a few weeks ago has rapidly expanded to nine, three of them nucs, one a new split and the half size top bar currently empty trialling as a bait hive. Not sure all are queen right yet though.’
My small apiary sits in the corner of a field surrounded by wild flowers. The photograph was taken at 9.00pm on June 21st, the longest day of the year. The small hive was an artificial swarm from the larger hive performed in early May 2020.
Dayna White sent in this beautiful photograph of her apiary showing the hives basking in the summer sunshine. Looking good Dayna.
Howard Price lost all his hives in a flash flood earlier this year. It really set him back but Howard was determined to start again. Five months later and with the help of a few beekeping

It is so good to see it that we have included two views of the new apiary with its matching blue hives. Well done Howard
