Let's just say the weather was mixed, shall we? So anyone apart from me, Richard the Younger, Phillip and Graham D was probably sensible in staying away.
We all enjoyed a brief, Malteser-laden visit from Em II and Boogie - he said he hoped to be with us again soon and promised to bring Em with him.
Both hives are now populated again but our buzzy friends were pretty quiet (apparently they don't like rain, so I have something in common with bees after all) as, thankfully, were the Pateley midges, altho' Graham said that he 'sensed' them.
Continuing moderate progress on the wall. We're at the tricky uphill stage now but our strategy seems to be working.
Please let summer come soon!
