Making Honey

I recently spent a few days down at Donnelly River which is an old timber milling town, now used as holiday homes in the forest.  The apiarist from Nannup Brook Farms had relocated his bee hives in a paddock where the marri and karri trees were in flower. We came across them removing the honey. I just had to buy a jar when I saw it on sale at the General Store. It is one of the nicest honey's I have tasted, so thick, not at all like the runny commercially produced honey. Since there is a flimsy wire fence in these photos I will link to Good Fences. The pics may be a little hazy as they smoke the bees out to collect the honey

Some of the  local wildlife were watching us as we were watching the bee keepers.

  1. Wow, look at all those bees flying around. I think beekeepers are very brave. The honey sounds yummy. I love the kangaroos. Great fence scenes and photos. Enjoy your day!

  3. the kangaroos are just amazing! :)

    i try to buy local honey when i can, too. supposedly it helps with seasonal allergies since the plants the bees 'feed' on are what you might be allergic to. :) thanks, linley!

  6. How cool to watch the bee keepers removing the honey. You can see the fencing just fine. I still can't get over that you see kangaroo's out and about like that. The only one's I've ever seen were in zoo's.
