    Paul from Oxfordshire Natural Beeks has forwarded a link to this article

bees the more we realise how little we really know at all. Isn’t that what’s 
so good about this natural beekeeping journey?!

    Paul also forwarded an article about how rough interior surfaces in hives 
encourage propolis collection which - surprise - results in lower bacterial 
loads for the honey bees in the colony.

    Hope to see you all on Thursday - if you haven’t already, please do let 
us know if you’re coming as I need to let Sheila know numbers.
    All the best
    Monica
