What are we doing????   We are getting two hives...........Paul, my husband, has been busy making an electrified bear proof (maybe!) enclosure and now he is driving me nuts hammering the new hives together!

pretty soon you'll be posting your swarm catch stories.  you won't be able to go on holiday in May because it's swarm season. you won't be able to go in July because you are pulling honey.  :-)
you'll move all the lawn furniture out by the hives so you can watch the bees come and go, and you'll buy a new camera with super-duper macro so that you can take really close up  pictures of them when they land on your arm.

welcome to beekeeping and this site.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

No one wants to come and bother you when your in the sting zone.

Welcome, and my condolences!  You will now be forced to sell everything you own to fuel your need for bees.  I speak from experience.  It is the only peace I find, mainly because, as mentioned earlier, no one wants to bother you while your around your hives.  We have lawn furniture dedicated solely to bee-watching, and yes the neighbors, family, and friends think we are nuts.  (But then again, aren't we all nuts in our own little ways?)  Soon you will be driving around, searching out others' beehives.  (I can spot a hive at 100 yards while driving at highway speeds.)  Enjoy  your new endeavor and may it add many happy years to your lives!

  If Port Britain is where I think it is,  I am only about 1/2 hour drive from you.  I sell nucs and have a beekeeping supply store at www.dancingbeehoney.com
 Anyhow, good luck with your beekeeping.  You will find it gives you relief from worldly stress.
