A few links

Some articles/blog posts you might enjoy…

I wouldn’t normally link to the Daily Mail, but local Ealing beekeepers John Chapple and Andy Pedley feature in a DM article celebrating their work as beekeepers to the Queen. I think John’s mischievous personality comes across well. The DM only make one obvious spelling mistake – “soupers” instead of “supers” – they must think the bees are cooking up minestrone in there.

This teacher’s life is one of my favourite blogs, by Stephen, a science teacher and beekeeper in Northern Ireland. This recent post features a slightly yucky method of detering foxes, fairy ring mushrooms and the origins of the phrase ‘getting pissed’: http://thisteacherslife.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/the-prowler.

BeGetting Carpenter Bees – bet you’ve never seen carpenter bees mating this closely before. An exhausted female is fought over by a trio of males – http://gardenwalkgardentalk.com/2011/08/29/beegetting-carpenter-bees

Inspired Beeing – I’ve begun reading this blog recently and it never disappoints. Cat quit her job in June 2011 to set off on an adventure to rural Turkey to support small-scale, eco-friendly female beekeepers over there. The photos she takes are full of vibrant colours. This particular post, about a young beekeeper she’s working with, has a very sad and troubling ending: http://inspiredbeeing.com/2011/08/28/sometimes-learning-really-stings-lessons-of-honey-and-development.

About Emily Scott

I am a UK beekeeper who has recently moved from London to windswept, wet Cornwall. I first started keeping bees in the Ealing Beekeepers Association’s local apiary in 2008, when I created this blog as a record for myself of my various beekeeping related disasters and - hopefully! - future successes.
