ARGH

 The bees swarmed. a lovely big swarm, positioned perfectly in the apricot tree,  balled up so nicely.

twins were busy on ipads. ( cannot leave them unsupervised for a second and DH is overseas having adventures so home alone)

I made a made dash  out 

 positioned the empty hive right underneath

 did the classic sharp pull on the branch and jerk

 the the whole swarm  hit the ground about 2 cm away from the hive - ARGH

 leaped up into the air and who knows where they are now 😪

 

 

 

I now have that feeling of jumping up and down or smacking my head into a wall

 

I am so hopeless when it comes to dimensions  - in fact I am pretty hopeless at everything

how did you know I was rummaging the pantry for chocolate. the only thing I can find are Fredo frogs 😞  not the same 

 

They bloody aren't, are they? But they are better than cooking chocolate...

I once helped a friend chase down her hive and she, as a very longtime beekeeper, also failed at getting them back.

Obviously you are not hopeless. But until you get some well deserved chocolate and stomp about it a bit, I'm sure it feels that way.

Oh man!  I have the worst judgment for visual spatial took me forever to learn to drive.  I can 100pc see this happening.

i have to say with a swarm of bees though you are very brave.  Also I hope you don’t mind but the visual does make me chuckle a little bit!  Hopefully they come back or turn up soon.  And you find some edible chocolate in the meantime.
