For many years, I have thought about, cogitated, seriously considered and researched becoming a beekeeper.
I think my garden would be large enough, with plenty of bee-friendly plants growing in it. In late Spring my Cotoneaster are alive with bees and then later into the summer my Buddleia, lavender, heather and poppies are continuously buzzing. We are also surrounded by bee-friendly wild plants; dog-rose, bramble, heather, gorse and dandelion, all within three miles, which is, apparently, the maximum distance bees fly to find food.
The following photos are of Bumble Bees and other non-honey bees, as it’s still a bit early in the year and the honey bees haven’t woken up yet ;-)
