I'm new to bee keeping and am the proud owner of a growing nuc with lots of busy bees. I did have a swarm earlier this year which turned out to be a cast, which then turned out to be a queenless cast. So, forked out for a nuc and those guys are in and out with their pollen.
I'm loving keeping bees. We have a national hive (pretty common in the UK) and OH is in the process of building another hive in the expectation(hope) of more bees to come.
My name is Fiona, I live in the Yorkshire Dales, on top of a windy hill, and look forward to e-meeting you all.
