Week 20 2014


The latest news on the bees is that they flew away… hopefully they have found a dream home somewhere, so now we still have an empty hive, all ready and waiting for a new swarm.

We had a lovely day on Thursday at Chateau Bonhoste.  It was like a night market, but during the day  - plenty of delicious things to eat and drink.  There was also entertainment by en excellent Jazz band playing Cuban style dance music and also a Bandas later in the day.  The rain stayed away and it was a great event.

If you hear of a great event, or just want to let me know about something going on, no matter how big or small, drop me a line and I’ll add it into the weekly listings.

Have a great week – whatever you do, they say that the warmer spring weather is on its way from Wednesday.
Best wishes,
