First off I am taking you back not too far...just to Friday 22 May in fact when with a little help from the Boy and Trojan we again found a pond on the bee plot!!
|As you can see the pond area had got|
a little out of hand. I like to leave
long grass round the edges when I
cut it bit it had gone a bit too wild
so measures had to be taken!!
|Here you can see the bee hives...well just!|
These have been left with the long grass
to offer some protection from the elements
and a sense of privacy for the bees.
|I think the bird bath could do with a|
bit of a clean up!! I rather like this
|Here is the boy hard at work, he was unaware|
that I took the photo from inside the shed!!
|So here is the pond area all tidied up. I|
didn't make it too tidy though but you
can now see what is around. A little more
tidying may be done but not too much.
|Of course Trojan loved his time with us. Dogs|
have to be kept 'under control' at the allotments
so he was tethered but had plenty of length
although he did tie himself up a couple of times!
|Seens as we were at the bee plot I|
thought I should get at least a couple
of bee photos. These two are just about
to go foraging.
|Of course I wasn't kitted up so|
didn't go deep into the hive
but here is a pic of the bees
I split last week.
