How do you stop the pondederia Cordata from taking over .? 

Everything is in pots, except the big lily which is in it's own deep soil depression. I do have to weed, the blasted Bladderwort.

I wonder if it is worse than bladderwort.

Clearly she has an allergy to bees. She appears to have been stung at least twice.

I get so hot under the collar when I see those stupidly ............. undersized box handles... who ever thought tiny box handles were a good idea should be made to stack a truckload of full ones all day.

Do you think her expanded mammary glands would be a nuisance when she was lifting full supers .

I think there would be a snowflakes chance that a bird like that could lift a full super

i agree Daly, but we would be happy watching her try. she'd at least be good for moving a unstrapped hive as she got something good to hold lid on while carrying it

Truth is she'll have to have it all removed again at some point and end up messed up and thousands of dollars poorer. Don't know why people inflict these deformities on themselves.

Looking like that probably pays well enough at the beginning to be able to afford the surgery later .

Maybe. But I was once involved with a nightclub, several of the staff were aspiring models who had to sweat it out serving booze to support themselves while waiting for the occasional photo shoot, it was sad.

 

Look at the girl in that pic. She got a nice natural smile, with her mouth. But look at the eyes, she looks used, and tired.

I don’t know Alistair, she’s just suppered up that hive and looks like its a hot day buy the beekeeping suit she’s wearing, just needs a break, and some of Daleys sandwiches

I agree.lots of sites with a rhodo, lemon tree and sometimes a chimney 

 

Here's one with the chimney, scenic but kinda lonely, knowing once a family was raised there, now they gone and almost nothing to remember they even existed.

That will be why it looks so intact.

I was thinking about the  crumbling 100 yr old chimneys round here and was impressed at how well things lasted in Auckland .
