1 less beehive
Enjo & Gillian came and took one of the beehives away today - couldn't have been less suitable weather. Cold, mizzly and grismal, low clouds - it never really got light. Just the sort of day to cosy up with a good book which I DID. Picked up a copy of "A Reverence for Wood" by Eric Sloane ISBN 0486433943. It was first published in 1965 and reprinted by Dover Books in 2004. I thoroughly recommend it, in fact I recommend any and all of his books if you can find them. Wonderful drawings and a reader friendly style of writing.
Photo is of my grandad Charlie Fawcett on the day in 1916 that he signed his indentures to become an apprentice joiner.
