Sorry for the cheesy pun, I get it from my mother (and maybe my father too!). Yesterday I built a skep (traditional beehive) from grasses that I collected from the forest during our walk. This one is just for decoration since it is illegal to keep bees in skeps in Canada. For years I have had this website bookmarked and finally decided to give skepmaking a go. I don't have the proper materials for making a skep (I don't know where to get brambles for the binder in these parts, and I also don't have any access to long straw), so I improvised with wild grasses and some twine to make my own "shabby chic" version. It was actually a quick process and I was done in about an hour and a half. I love the way it looks in the garden. Yippee!
Ooooo, and tonight I am going to watch a play. Smiles for Friday :)
What is new and wonderful in your lives right now?
