Volunteering meeting


The National Trust is getting more organised with their induction of volunteers so even though our bee project started 18 months ago I went for a stage 2 induction meeting.  Potentially death by Powerpoint but it was very well done and a good mix of information putting the project in context.  I took the opportunity to walk down the parterre to the bees and see if all looked well.  It was quiet on site though the session was well attended so walking through the almost deserted pathways meant you could almost imagine you were lord or lady of the manor.  It is so peaceful despite the fact we are on the outskirts of a commuter town.

The wildlife in the garden the last few days have caused us some amusement.  Squirrels sliding down neighbours roofs and then playing Tarzan through the trees to get back to the top again.  Ungainly pheasants precariously trying to get the seeds from the bird feeders.  magnificent swirling, sweeping red kites showing off to each other – and possibly looking for nesting sites?

About apiarylandlord

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience. That is probably all you need to know until I work out how secure this blog is. Great fan of recycling - see ilovefreegle.org to find your local group. Save things from landfill. Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.
