Beekeeping Adventures

This week Olswang invited us to come and visit their wonderful beehives!  With a full coach bus we headed out and were surprised to find out Olswang is in fact an international law firm with big commercial clients such as BBC, and they have a quaint garden with a few beehives.  They led us into a beautiful room and provided us with tea, coffee, honey cakes, biscuits, fruits and delicious honey of course!  The beekeeper came in to tell us all about the bees and how they make such wonderful honey to prepare for the winter.  He gave the brave souls a chance to dress up in the beekeeping suits and venture out into the gardens where they could look at the hive that held about 60,000 busy bees!  It was a wonderful afternoon full of laughter and fun and we couldn’t have asked for lovelier hosts.
