I arrived home today after being in Hamilton (mystery creek) all day. The mercury said it was 30 degrees at 5.30pm.:eek: Head around to the bees to see how they are going. The two langs are on omf and looked fine but the warre is on a solid floor, it looked like most of the colony was outside the hive:eek:. So into the shed to get my last Warre box and 8 frames. After saying "Allah peanut butter sandwiches" another box was nadired to the hive which is now 5 boxes high, and I have already extracted a box from this hive, ha! and I was worried about the queen laying multiple eggs in a cell a few months ago;) So this second year beekeeper is chillin out now. I would never have believed how a colony builds up if I hadnt experienced it after wintering this hive. All other hives I have are from swarms caught this season and one nuc aquired this October, yes they have built up fast but they started strong as well.

[quote name='Julie']Dansar, is the herb in front of the hive origanum?[/quote] Hi Julie, it may well be origanum. I transplanted some thyme and this plant after splitting from plants at the front of the house. it smells nice when the leaves are bruised between the fingers.

lol :rofl: [quote name='dansar'] "Allah peanut butter sandwiches"[/quote] That rang a bell, but I couldn't properly remember a magican muppet (because he was on Sesame St, which I didn't really watch). Had to cheat and resort to google.
