Well what an amazing year this has been, I have been a little quiet on the blogging front as I have been writing elsewhere. My book Backyard Bees is just about to be released and its been an absolute joy to work on. I was approached by Murdoch books last year to write a beginners beekeeping book and next month its released. Its a great book for the beginner or just an interested bystander who wants to learn about bees, or cook with honey..theres a fantastic bee sting cake recipe along with cocktails and ice creams. Yum!
