Our swarmy bees

Our bees decided to swarm yesterday and proceeded to land in the garden of our (very understanding and tolerant) new neighbours’.

They landed high up in an elderflower.  Nick held the ladder while I climbed up with my cardboard box and shook them into it. We got most of them into the box and took them home then shook them onto a sheet in front of the hive and watched them march in. They are still there today so hopefully we have the queen.
