Buzzing Bees

Today I popped down into the village with Ma and Pa to visit the Epsom Apiary. I've lived here all my 21 years but even now I'm discovering these little places. Mum's been interested in starting a bee keeping course for a while, which alongside our chickens (which will be arriving in a few weeks) will make us right ol' suburban hippies!
We even tried some honey mead, an ancient alcoholic beverage which was drunk at weddings before grapes were brought over to the UK. It's where the word "honeymoon" comes from. You learn a new thing every day!
