Everything went really well with the installation of my new colony into my bee 🐝 hive. The only sticking point was the smoker….yep jammed….glued tight! I googled, I searched other bee sights…NOTHING CAME UP ABOUT SMOKERS GLUED SHUT?
Well I put my thoughts 💭 together and came up with – placing the said smoker in the vice and carefully pulling until it was open. Thankfully 😅 & GRATEFULLY I managed to do it! Note to self CLEAN THAT SMOKER AFTER EACH USE IMMEDIATELY! With a rag and mentholated spirits 😀👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.
Progress check after 3 days of owning 🐝 bees…..they look like their doing ok 👌🏻 & just in time to fill up their sugar syrup supply 😉👩🏻🌾
Happy little 🐝🐝🐝🐝🙏🏻makes me 😃👩🏻🌾
They’re Here!!!! Oh my good goodness I seriously was on such a natural high…..but had to keep grounding myself & keeping on the calm side. This day had finally arrived, all the years of wanting was now here! I have put some financial investment into this project, many hours of planning and labour too. ALL of those negative thoughts 💭 running through my mind…you keep 🐝 bees? What do you know? Your NO EXPERT! What were you thinking? YOU DIDN’T THINK!?
“OH JUST BUZZ THE HELL OFF!” I had to think and just keep moving ahead or I would never do this! I have spent most of my life fearing & listening to others WAY TOO MUCH!
Enough waffling here are some photos of my Beemetropolis 🐝🐝🐝I am buzzing this morning 🤦🏻♀️sorry but I did offer up a warning ⚠️ on my last post🤷🏻♀️😉🤣
I NEED TO OFFER UP A WARNING ⚠️ HERE BEFORE YOU READ ON…..I may use the bee 🐝 word in many ways from now on🤔🤣 I read many years ago, if you eat honey 🍯 from your local area-it helps with hay fever 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
This year is the 50th Anniversary of me having hay fever and I need to do SOMETHING ABOUT IT🤦🏻♀️
My beautiful daughter is allergic to bees 🐝 🐝 so I was fairly reluctant to take this task on alone🤷🏻♀️I had a friend suggest, he could bring out one of his hives & he would look after it for me. But that never eventuated. Well my daughter grew up and moved 2 states away to a tropical 🌴 paradise, I separated from her father and it’s my VERY OWN PLACE NOW😉
So here I am about to embark on a VERY EXCITING NEW PROJECT. I am nervous, cautious and VERY QUIETLY EXCITING (did I say quietly?) I HAVE NOT SHUT UP ABOUT IT!!
I have saved up, bought all my basic gear, painted the hive, prepared the site (almost) and now counting down the hours to bee 🐝 pick up😲👏🏻👏🏻
Here are some photos until I get my new livestock (the smallest ever 😃)
I hope you enjoy 😉 my little post? Butuntil touchdown I have to BUZZ OFF👩🏻🌾💃🏻
