a box of bees


Well, it has been awhile I know, but I am now back in the land of bees after acouple of months recovering from two hip replacement operations - no more pain !

While I have been lying around I have done a huge amount of reading, alot of it bee related and this is one of the gems I found. It being a New Zealand book of poems made it all the more special - I had to buy it.

The author, Emily Dobson, is from a family of beekeepers in the Hawkes Bay which is situated in the North Is of NZ. The family has been keeping bees for many years with her Great-Grandfather starting the business.
