Book Beginnings: The Bees

The Bees by Laline Paull

"The old orchard stood beseiged"

The orchard, where in sits the bee hive this book is about, is in the midst of a city, so there is industry and housing closing in on all sides. Not great for bees. But they manage! Makes me glad I planted more flowers in my little garden this year.

I have to admit that the cover kind of scares me! I have bee issues - I know they are needed by the plants and our ecology but I'm not really a fan when there are a bunch flying around...lol..though I do love honey. Here's my Friday post
