Hi all
« on: February 22, 2013, 10:42:43 AM »
 I'm in the UK, have been keeping bees for 3 years now, what a learning curve!  I keep my bees on allotments and mostly in nationals.  ( I have an empty TBH which I hope to re-populate)  It's freezing cold now here, although the bees were out collecting water and a bit of pollen the other day.  Unfortunately the forecast for the next few weeks is dire.  Come on Spring!

Welcome to the forum!  Getting to be a lot of Brits here and folks from all over the world.   The ground is frozen where my bees sit and it looks to be at least a month before they find pollen so my forecast is dire too!

Thanks for the welcome... am I 'hopelessly lost'?!  That's referring to my lack of location in my profile or my state of mind? :roll:
I'm looking forward to reading and listening to how beekeepers from different parts of the world keep their bees.

Welcome!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Hello and welcome.

Please educate me. What do you mean by "I keep my bees on allotments"?

A new term to me.

Thanks and good luck.

Thanks all, for your welcome.
Seag2425, allotments are small plots of land for town and city dwellers to grow vegetables/flowers.  Very popular now in the UK, most sites have a long waiting list.  Some sites allow bees, and luckily mine does! :bee:
