Today I was out in the patch we call a garden, playing with BabyMibs in a paddling pool to make the most of this gorgeous weather we have been recently blessed with, and BabyMibs pointed out our first sighting this year of a bee!
It really gives me comfort in my smallholding beekeeping plans when my four year old already knows what they are and that we “have to be careful not to hurt them mommy, we need them to be ok”
Given the declining bee populations worldwide, and especially here in the UK, I have given a LOT of thought and planning on how I intend to keep them, what they will live in and more importantly how they will be “stored” during their winter hibernation.
Those future bees of mine will be living in the lap of heated luxury for the duration of our ever increasing cold winters, bless their ickle furry bods!
Some furrballs do have ’em! lol
