Fused glass bees

With the coldest April since I can remember, the bees are struggling to get out. They need the temperature to be around 13 degrees before they fly and that means no nectar being brought in at a time when they are increasing in numbers.

The trials and tribulations of a beekeeper aside, we have been making some glass bees ready for the Essex Young Farmer’s show, so at least there is the illusion of flying bees around here.
