After flying back into the country this morning, the new bees are now in and all ready for the market tomorrow. Hope to see you there. #thatgreatmarket
The bees have been busy in the leptospermum which has given us honey pearls. The honey is very jelly-like and difficult to extract. That’s why it’s called jellybush honey. You may know it better by the name manuka honey. In the old days it was thrown away because it was so hard to work with.
Gifts from the garden.
What's under the lid? Without the confines of square frames to guide them, bees will build these beautiful flowing designs of honeycomb. It's a sign that all is well in the hive. We like to leave this for a rainy day.
