Checked the topbar skep housed at my mum's place. made sure to tend the 'period' hive, in suitable (get it!) practice.
the reasons i dislike the below foto: i have my arms out of the sleeve and they are crossed in front of my chest. i don't have boobs. (boobs). the plastic under the lid. it annoys me that i can't trust the pot lid to do what i want, so i am cheating and coving with plastic to help seal the hive (and protect it from weather) i should have used clay and i know it.
SIDE from that me and my beehive, noway will it be ready for festival. *sigh*
