Hello from the Daintree Rainforest, Australia


#1

Hi everyone,

I am 16 years old and bought a Western Red Cedar Flow Hive in April of this year. I have now had bees in my hive for just over two weeks, so I am very new to beekeeping. I live in the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, in Queensland, Australia, the oldest in the world and have created an Instagram account documenting my adventure as a beginning beekeeper. Please feel free to check it out - my username is beeniehoney :yum: Thank you! :blush::slight_smile:

Happy beekeeping,
Victor

Good luck with the bees


#3

Very exciting, are you the youngest Flow owner then?


#4

That sounds interesting :slight_smile:

Feel free to post some photos and videos here, as I’ve never used Instagram (eek) :fearful:
p.s. I think you tag flowhive if you want to share your Flow Hive experiences…
Don’t know if it’s @ or # (need to read the help menu :stuck_out_tongue: )

Might be like Facebook was for me many years ago :wink:

Ok, sounds great. I will do that then if I have a particularly interesting story to share :grin:

Thank you :slight_smile:

Wow, Dee - you’re certainly a lot wiser than your years :wink:

Oh come on, @Eva! You have to admit that most of us are teenagers (or younger) at heart. :smile: After all, we like building boxes out of wood, playing with insects and getting all dirty and sticky! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
