Year of the Rabbit
A horror story or what?!
We visited a beautiful garden recently complete with a Mediaeval Monastery and this curious structure near the main house - a Mediaeval Beehive ‘house’. The beehives are woven baskets called Skeps in which the bees make the honey on curved combs. Here comes the shocking bit - when the honey is harvested the bees are either killed or made homeless in the process, poor bees!!! This means that each year the bee-keeper needs to start again by collecting a new wild swarm. A sad tale huh?!!!
