bees, honey and other sticky subjects

That white honey again

Reading my village magazine I notice that the nature column talks of two large fields of borage in the area. So perhaps my white honey is from borage -- though I still have doubts because the bees would have to fly quite some distance to work it.

Incidentally, I now hear that the borage I saw growing at the weekend may not have been set-aside or for green manure. It may have been for the pharmaceutical industry to process into borage oil, a health supplement.
