    Ted If I was clever I wouldn't have been boxing bees in a gale or before a drenching.

    We made a mistake; something we thought would be OK, over three weeks ago. The bees thought otherwise, so they made another queen (cell) which is why the old one fled. Anyway, she and hers are all OK, making wax and making babies. Just I need to get more kit to ensure the colony can grow. 

    Then we have to decide whether to reunite the old lady with her old colony, or take a risk on her daughter with unknown qualities. Either way we have a friend who is desperate for a good tempered queen or two and this lot are lovely.

    Oh Dave, sending you cyber hugs and commiserations. Rest your poorly eye well!
    Congrats on the Good News! Will you be able to see the new infant any time soon?
    Love from Liverpool

    Dave - You poor thing. Hope it is all fine & you get to see an eye clinic. I ended up there a little while ago after poking myself in the eye with a branch. It was painful & I was given wrong drops by Nurse I initially saw so had to go to A&E - you are in the right place.  Good news on the Grandkiddie front - how lovely. If you've scratched your eyeball and you get drops do them religiously - do everything they say. I was even waking up & doing mine in the middle of the night. 
    RAS - How interesting all the bee keeping stuff is. I did know someone who kept them and they got right into it and got hives from Wormit in Fife as they lived nearby.
    Sorry that you are still under the weather Greenbee - you'll have to take it easy and recover your health.
    Got the sheep spotted on & the cat as he's picking up ticks at the moment too. Managed to get a bit of wood sawn up between showers. 
    Did a bit of listing on the bay as I am still unearthing clutter from boxes I'd packed away in the caravan. It's okay if it's china or metal but the moths and mice have had a field day in there - pretty grotty really. Can't believe we lived in there for all the time we did. Wasp's nest in the cupboard next to the stove - nature does take over - which is somehow reasurring.

    Thanks for your kind words all. Yes, I am a twit! Better this morning, but still blurred, runny nose etc
    Can't see baby till I can see to get up the M5 and back, but nothing immediate was planned. Probably next week. Sad that it can't be Twinkle and Swamp Boy seems to be falling omn deaf ears too!

    Glad things are looking better this morning, Dave. Do take care. The tears will help it heal even if they feel like a nuisance. 

    Greenbee,are they summer or autumn raspberries?

    Autumn ones @RAS - but starting to ripen and the birds are nicking them. I have summer ones but had neglected them so cut them down this year. Need to sort them out for next year. They’re all in raised beds about 1.5m x 0.5m with a trellis arch between the two (which has perennial peas and climbing beans up it!).

    Dave - glad that the eye is improving but you need to keep on with moisture drops to help it heal. If it is running it needs looking at. If your nose is running I would get back in touch with the optician who will be able to access your xrays/photos of your eye. You really have to watch this - no pun intended as if you've scratched the eye ball it can open up even when nearly healed. This is what happened to me weeks afterwards -  keeping the eye moist is crucial. It  looked like I was going to need a corneal graft as it kept flaring back up.
    Good the hen is just a big lass lady hen. 

    Still no eggs for us which is rather annoying.
    Low cloud and very dreich here. Managed to haul a sizeable willow branch out of the burn without falling in - very midgied but perservered - I have some sort of masochistic tendencies when it comes to firewood.
