Its great to hear your children are involved too, so often you hear of people being frightened of them. They fascinate me!
I had thought about bees!! But the course wasnt finalized untill December for the following Feb and because we had to pay for the full amount of the course up front, I never did, with it being to near Christmas (kids and all) But this year I will have some warning, that is if its a day course!!
I would love to tried lavender honey or wildflower honey. The thought a hive or two in a wildflower meadow just intrigues me!!
Hi, I don't have any bees yet but would really love to have a hive some day soon. I've been in touch with my local beekeeping group and they seem really friendly and happy to help. I'm especially interested in 'flowers for bees', and the idea of making an area of bee meadow in my garden.
