Flower Log

I saw bees working ivy flowers today. In August!  It’s going to be a long hard winter. 

I haven’t seen gorse in flower for months. 

The Rosebay Willowherb has been good this year and so has the Himalayan Baslam.  I see lots of bees returning to the hive looking ghostly from being coated with Balsam pollen.

I have been keeping bees since 1978 and currently have about a dozen hives. I am a member of the BBKA where for many years I represented Dorset at the Annual Delegates' Meeting. I am the co-author (with Dave MacFawn of of S. Carolina) of "Getting the Best from Your Bees" and am working on a book of my own poems : "Bee People".
