Michael gave up some much appreciated time to come and inspect our hive. As Tim's is still suffering with his back I was prime dismantler. Quite an engaging task when you have the calming voice of Michael by your side. I am not ready to go it alone. We are still on a huge learning curve. The discovery of a wax moth larvae is an experience I don't think I will ever recover from. After disturbing the dark headed beast it squirmed across the frame I was holding. I am still mightily impressed with my control not to throw it across the garden. It was swiftly dealt with by a leather glove.
It was good to get out in the company of friends for wine and food this evening. We took a trip to The Star in Matfield accompanied by Si, Lesley, Nick and Alli.
