Up in the rolling hills of St. Hellier, Albinas bees had been building a small empire.
These are the bees that came from Katrinas' compost bin,
Jazmina had taken them up there a little while earlier...
That looks like a big rooster sitting outside the window.
Poor lonely thing has no harem since the fox visited.
A fairly shady spot, but well prepared.
That's the single box that arrived a couple of weeks ago, and the second box we were going to put on.
I'm hoping that Albina will look after these herself, I feel like my hands are full, just with all the bees we have in and around Melbourne. We'll see.
Lots of bees
Plenty of brood for a young hive. All healthy looking.
Workers keeping the front door busy.
After the second box was put on. A proud beekeeper.
