Beekeeping but of a different kind
|Today I helped chaperone our charity mascot, Tabby, who was dressed as a giant bee|
Although the temptation to wrestle the costume off Tabby (or to at least have a go at wearing the bee's head) was pretty great, I instead helped to assist her (she couldn't really see a thing) as we cheered our ladies off at the start line, went around with buckets collecting money from the spectators and then seeing them cross the finish line at the end.
|Tabby and I with some of our Regency Runners at the start. We're all very smiley and I'm sure in that suit Tabby was smiling too.|
Later on, however, I did have a quick check on the Beehaus - the weather is till too chilly to do a full inspection but when I lifted the lid I saw that they'd made huge inroads into the fondant and I could actually see the bees through the cling film. And even better than that, I saw some bees coming into the Beehaus with pollen. Happy days.
I've now had a stern talking to the weatherman and put an order in for some hot weather and sunshine. Surely it's about time!
