Free the bees!

So, bees are under threat throughout the world, what with the destruction of their natural habitat and foulbrood disease. And the death of the last bees heralds the end of civilization, as they form an integral part of our food production cycle.

On that apocalyptic note, I am happy to report that the bees are alive and well in Puntans Hill. I spotted a mini-swarm harvesting pollen from our cherry trees and, on visiting my neighbour to borrow some salad leaves for lunch, the same bees were buzzing around her flowering rocket.
