Tonight I am wearing.....

I went to my first practical bee keeping class yesterday and absolutely loved it. How amazing and wonderful bees are! And it was such a mindful and serene experience handling them - not at all frantic as you might imagine. The beekeeper has to be calm, measured and purposeful when handling the bees and show them utmost respect - for they are Zen Masters.
There is more about my bee experience on the garden blog.

How fantastic to take a bee-keeping class! It sounds like you really enjoyed it. How interesting that you say it was mindful and serene handling them.
We planted some seeds that we got from the Blue Peter 'Be nice to bees' campaign and they're just starting to grow, so hopefully the bees around here will like the flowers :)
