I saw something today which at first terrified and then delighted me - a swarm of bees outside my house. Imagine hundreds (thousands?)of buzzing honeybees, loud enough to make themselves heard through the double glazing, and landing all over the windows. Fortunately my neighbour is an ex-beekeeper so she explained to Tiny Small and myself what was happening and we watched as the bees started to cluster together ready to fly off to a new home. By the time we returned from collecting Tall Small from school, there were only a handful of sadly deserted bees bumbling around and we started to wonder whether we had imagined it all.
Sadly I didn't think to grab the camera, so instead here's a picture of a bag I was commissioned to make recently. It's a keepsake satchel, and apparently the little chap it was for liked it nearly as much as his mum did!
