A photo here of Grandad Basils beekeeping:

Grandad Basil Beekeeping

In the photo Grandad Basil is at a big house at Sproughton,in Suffolk where Grandad Basil kept 2 or 3 of his hives. Dad thinks he is with the Bee Association bee- keeper. They are checking for various Bee Mites and Diseases and checking the overall health of the swarm. Funny to see – neither of them seem worried about gloves or overalls and Grandad Basil is wearing a big plastic safari hat and veil from a specialist Bee-keeping supplier.
