18/4.2011 - we're going to beekeeping!
we had our first lesson in beekeeping. it was held at a tiny little museum in a tiny little town that's scarcely more than the museum. the other members of the bee club are rather, ahem, older than us. it seems that it's an activity for retired folks. but they seemed quite charmed that youngsters like us were interested.
the local accents were thick and i had some trouble understanding everything that was said, but i think that we'll soon have our own queen and family of bees! honey by the end of the summer!
bees are pretty amazing and i'm looking forward to learning more.
it kinda gives new meaning to the whole bee charmer thing. :-)
