When I arrived on the allotment this morning to let out the hens and ducks, I was greeted by the amazing view of the hives being incredibly busy. It is a warm and sunny day and clearly the bees are making the most of it. The bees have continued to be busy through this afternoon. Given my fears about the weather damaging the honey crop (as it did last year - and the late running winter this year did not help), this amount of bee activity is enormously welcome. Long may it continue.
