Fresh honey straight from the hive…

We watched our neighbour build his beehive, then we watched with interest as he put on his bee keepers suit and transported a whole swarm of bees into the hive. We watched him feed his bees with sugar syrup every day for the first few weeks and daily we observe the bees with fascination as they constantly fly in and out of the hive on a mission, in their hundreds, quickly attacking any foreign bee or insect which is not part of their swarm. And now finally, all of my neighbour’s hard work, coupled with the very hard and clever work of the bees, has produced this…. a beautiful and succulent honey comb dripping with honey.

Honeycomb

Unfortunately I can’t eat it while pregnant, but I will watch with envy as my hubby and family devour it. I don’t think it will last for long.
