It's looking a lot like winter is upon us and the bees are now in hibernation, huddling together in their hive to keep warm and preserve their energy. We had such a bad summer for them - when the rain gets on their wings, they cannot fly home so could therefore starve or freeze to death; they also need to keep a certain amount of their honey to get them through the winter months. If you see a honey bee resting on the ground (looks like a very small wasp!) you could help it by giving it a saucer of water with stones in for it to stand on to get a drink without getting wet - you could also add sugar/honey to feed it and help the whole of humanity because without the bees, we cannot survive!
We hope to have some honey available in late Spring next year.
Please bring your empty jars back for recycling - thank you.
