Elisabeth, welcome to our forum, so nice that you have found us. I am of Swedish decent -- my Father, Swedish, my Mother, Finnish my Mother's Father being Scottish.
We have many beekeepers appearing from different parts of the world to join our forum, your time spent here will be very rewarding for you. Here you can learn stuff, you can lean on others for help, advice. It is a great place to tell your many stories, tales and experiences, here you will also make some new friends. We love to hear how beekeepers work their hives around the world in different places, and you find that some us are, uhm, rather, uhm, nosey, you find out soon enough who some of those are, smiling. Stick around, we love new members, it will be a place where you will become as addicted to as you are with your bees, you DO know that you are held under their spell, don't you, smiling. Have that most awesome and wonderful day, love our life, health. Cindi
