A swarm of bees arrive at Healing Herbs

Very great excitement when a swarm of bees arrived, just outside our front door. They landed in the Gorse flowers and it took some effort to find the cluster and get it into the skep. This straw basket is used to gather them before they are put into a hive as their new permanent home. It is early in the year and promises honey for us all come August. We will let  you know what happens.
