The Second Open Apiary of 2017 was hosted by Matt Vickers on 6th May. The weather was rather cool and overcast (good for photography). Matt showed us his very nicely decorated hives (the roofs are copper effect paint not real copper) and his very docile bees. Very nice nibbles and cakes to round off an enjoyable afternoon.

Nice frame and its only early May

Good practice, just like the rest of SBKA members

Feel the weight of that - Langstroth frame

Matt names his hives. This one is call Lau. You will have to ask him why.

Start them young.
