    Hi Phil and Jane, it was great to see you both last night. I will never hear Careless Whisper again without thinking of you! Phil’s shiner is coming up nicely and I’m not sure people are going to believe his tale of a Bon Jovi karaoke injury…. Looking forward to visiting you in Eden soon. Lots of love, Jill and Phil xx

      Unfortunately the didn’t make it through the winter. Flying in December and January wasn’t cost effective. Despite having a large block of fondant half an inch above their heads they didn’t find it. Many very experienced beekeepers lost significant numbers of colonies. We rejoined Penrith beekeepers and hope to gain a little more experience before acquiring another colony. Thanks for your continued interest. Phil and Jane
