bees, honey and other sticky subjects

Monday, September 12, 2005


Two contrasting smells have been permeating this village over the past week. On scenting the first one, I first checked the soles of my shoes, then blamed the cat, checked the sewerage, before realising that a farmer was spreading “muck” on his fields.

The second was rather more plesant -- coriander. And yesterday I found my bees wortking furiously (very unusual at this time of year) and bringing in what I believe to be coriander nectar. The honey is excellent (I sneaked some from brace comb).
