Rooftop Beekeeping in Richmond

Marshal and his family had been talking about having bees on  their rooftop in Richmond for some time.They had integrated solar heating into their home, established a worm farm and composting system into their newly renovated  Victorian terrace and were inspired by a progamm on rooftop beekeeping in New York.The bees arrived one sunny spring day with no drama until 7 days later, after the lid blew off in a very high wind,they decided to leave.Never mind, we immediately relocated another swarm into the hive,secured the lid and they have been happily collecting honey ever since.
The bees in this hive actually have a very good view of the MCG off in the distance.
