Honey from the bees

Last Saturday, honey fHoney2rom the beehive at the Rosebud Community Garden was harvested.

It was wonderful to be able to get up close to the hive and see Jan, who cares for the bees, do his magic.

Honey1The little smoker he used to pacify the bees wasn’t really needed, as they seemed to be feeling lazy in the unexpected sunshine. Karl had brought along protective gear so we had the opportunity to go into the area and take part in the process.

The best part, of course, was eating the warm honeycomb. It was amazingly dark and had a rich toffee flavour. Delicious!
