buzzin'

I would like to be able to say that I am easily pleased, but I doubt that it is true. There are, however, some things that do manage to perk me up. One of them is winning the quiz at the East End WI. We pulled off the hat trick this week with the bee quiz, me and the team that is. The occasion was our voting on the motion for the WI AGM on increasing government research into honey bee health. The prize - a load of booty from Chelsea Flower Show - a watering can rose (just what I needed), two copies of Amateur Gardening, a packet of oriental mix salad, a bird feeder (passed on to someone without three murderous cats). Who would have thought that this little stash could give such pleasure?

More bee stuff to come, no doubt.

NIce work! Who needs the Chelsea Flower Show if you've got someone else to go there for you and collect all the free stuff.

How super! You must be a bee expert. And I definitely agree we need more research into the honeybee situation. Have seen hardly a one on our plot this season...

Nothing cutter than an up close shot of a bee :)

Well done, the team. Love bees but I'd be useless in a quiz about them.
