Update on the sleepy bees

On the bees front! The latest information I have to hand is that it now seems that it wasn’t the fault of the bees at all. They did their best in some very adverse conditions and may even have been successful. We will never know!

No, the problem was not the lazy bees, no, it was a very late frost, and a lot of orchards in this part of South West France got hit by it.

It was fairly local though and won’t impact on the cherry trade – just my and a few other people's gardens....

Oh, and I guess I owe an apology to those hard working bees, without who this would be a pretty sparse blog!
