I Think... Therefore I Blog
A weekly series featuring some of Ealing's best
Did you know there was an apiary in Ealing? (An apiary is basically a shared allotment where bee keepers house their hives.)
It's in Perivale and run by the Ealing and District Beekeepers Association.
I've just read some of their info and found out a bit more about what happens to bees at this time of year (I often wondered).
''The whole colony will survive the winter, they do this by storing honey in the summer for use in the winter when they are not able to forage for food.
Ealing Blog (Eblog) of The Week
Emily Heath describes herself as ' a UK beekeeper living in Ealing, west London. I have been keeping bees in the Ealing Beekeepers Association’s local apiary in Perivale for a couple of years now and have created this blog as a record for myself of my various beekeeping related disasters and – perhaps, one day – future successes. No honey yet!'
You can read all about bees, find out where to buy local honey and learn more about Emily's hobby here in her Adventuresinbeeland's Blog
