Unusual and beautiful


You tube really is a great resource – it isn’t all pop videos and scandal!  For those who are curious about bees this can give a potted view of several aspects of beekeeping and bee life.

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.
