framesSpring has sprung early here in South London and unlike last season I am determined to have all my equipment ready before I need it. Saves all that rushing around at the last minute, something I did a lot of last season.

The wife has banned me from making frames on the dining room table after a few ….. erm  …….. incidents that left small holes in the table. So banished to a garden bench I spent a rather pleasant morning making frames on my trusty workbench.

I do have some hives to make, preparation is one of the many beekeeping rituals that I love about this hobby.
