What do infants and bees have in widespread? They do not learn the identical books as me.

Our queen bee arrived on 20 July. We named her Constance Amelia Maund. She is about three months previous right here and staring on the daylight by the bushes for the primary time.

As you could have guessed, I’ve been on ‘bee maternity depart’ since then.

You see, I learn a lot of child books earlier than she arrived however threw them out not lengthy after. Constance clearly hadn’t examine ‘the routine’. As an alternative, I caught to Dr Spock’s reassuring phrases and let child paved the way. Dr Spock is just like the Ted Hooper of the infant e-book world.

Like bees, infants additionally assist you to to see the world by new eyes. Constance loves her pram walks. On delicate, autumn days we stayed out for hours trying on the daylight by the bushes and the colours of the autumn leaves. For me too, it was like seeing these items for the primary time and realizing how great they’re.


Generally I’d get her out of the pram and we’d stroll beneath the weeping willows in order that she may really feel the light branches sweep throughout her face and to take a more in-depth take a look at the geese. She wasn’t positive concerning the geese.



After the clocks went again, our walks grew to become shorter and our journeys to the library extra frequent – ​​ alternative for Constance to see all these books she was alleged to have learn.


She largely likes the touch-and-feel books, significantly That is not my unicorn!.

Winter is right here now. I inform Constance a lot of tales to maintain her entertained on darkish December days, significantly concerning the bees and the way they’re trying ahead to spring as a lot as we’re.

I don’t know what our ‘routine’ will appear like subsequent 12 months. I hope to have a few Saturday afternoons right here and there to go to the apiary and produce again residence extra tales from the opposite beekeepers to inform Constance.

Till then, I would prefer to want people and hymenopterans in every single place a really merry festive season.
