Enjoy the little Things

Morning all, I couldn't resist this collection as I love bees and took up beekeeping late in 2014. All was going really well as I overwintered the colony and in early summer had to split my hive and set up a second one as they had run out of room and were producing queen cells in readiness to swarm. The split went well but unfortunately a couple of weeks later whilst we were on holiday a swarm of wasps cannibalised my hives and I lost both colonies. I decided to store the hives and start again this year so all being well get my queen and starter colony at the end of may. I'll keep you posted in a few weeks how things are progressing
