Bees

I’m on week ten of a ten week beekeeping course. After the classroom stuff, I’ll be getting hands on experience in the spring. Or getting stung, as the experienced beekeepers so delicately put it.

Bees are important, they are needed to pollinate our food crops and they are massively under threat.

This lady explains it much better than I can:

It’s just one of the many things going wrong with the world, I suppose. Like I said previously, it’s easy to get discouraged and give up.

There is another way, though. Pick something you can do and do it. Even if it’s as simple as being more mindful about what you consume. And plant some bee-friendly flowers.
