    I've barely had time to visit the forum over the past few weeks because of summer/Christmas/holidays, but I saw this story and just had to share. I hope that Baz in his little suit makes you smile as much as it did me :)

    The best part about his suit are the teeny weeny shoes. :D

    hmmm...I can't see how this would work. Once a dog has been stung they keep away from bees. Casper has been stung by ours a couple of times and is completely paranoid about anything that "buzzes"

    I think it's awful to do that to a dog :(

    You keep Bees Kate? How interesting, Thomas my youngest son (17 years) started a Bee Keeping course a few months ago, he is thoroughly enjoying it and is keen to get a hive when he has completed the course. I'm not sure though, any tips would be great. xx :)

    Yes we keep bees :) @Bensons-dad is always happy to show visitors around and talk bees. I think he has about 6 colonies atm.

    Any questions feel free to send @Bensons-dad a message, or me, but he is the expert, I just love the honey! :)

    I will Kate, thank you both. Thomas is hoping to get into honey production, a little ambitious I feel :) We have a Tea Shop in the village that sells local crafts, food etc. and the Pub buys local produce so he is living in hope :) Hive number 1 here we come! x
