For those of you who don’t know, the roof of my studio is an apiary, aka a place where I keep bees. Or rather a place where I used to keep bees. Sadly my hives suffered in the long 2015 winter and I emerged into 2016 no longer a beekeeper for the first time in 11 years.
But that’s all changed now as new bees have arrived at the Hall Music Studio, and took up residence in their new hive at the start of May. Here they are:
And don’t worry. Because the bees are up on the roof (about 2½ metres above the ground), you’ll hardly ever see any around the studio, as bees leave and return home from above the hive.
