It was a real damp autumnal day today. A lot of the trees in my garden have shed their leaves, which covered the ground as I worked clearing up the bonfire from Guy Fawkes Night. My work led me down the garden near the beehives and the activity at the entrances gave me a good feeling: Loads of creamy coloured pollen laden legs waddling indoors and purposeful take offs heading the opposite way. Magic!
