To enter the competition, you needed to leave a comment telling me either your favourite thing about bees or a memorable experience you had with a bee. Barbara’s comment was:
“I grew up in the country and most of the plants my mother grew were bee-friendly so the garden on a warm day always had a friendly hum from the bees! I love their shape and the fuzziness of their bodies.
This July I went on an excellent bee keeping course at Hen Corner in south London to find out more. This was terrific and gave me so much confidence about handling bees and frames and knowledge about their life style and how to raise them. I also got my bee identifier chart just recently from Friends of the Earth but I’m not yet proficient!”
