He says he is staying in bed. It's too cold and far too wet for an Aby to be out!

Doesn't it look great?
I ,meanwhile, tidied and cleaned out the bee-shed.The kit is now logically arranged, like with like, instead of everything heaped together anyhow.
In a break for a cup of tea, I saw this honey bee working her way along all of the dandelion flowers, and her face was yellow with pollen.Even better, her pollen 'baskets' were bulging with it, too.
The bees spring build-up is very slow this year.I am having to feed them...but hopefully it means they will survive.
Steenie, M. andJacqui came over on Sunday afternoon, so, of course, I made cake. A quick recipie is an old one for rock buns. To make them a bit more interesting, I left out sultanas and currants,and put in dried cherries and cranberries instead. Much more of a zing.

And I have finally done the 'finishing' on my 'composed mitts', by Michele Rose Orne. I do like a bit of Fair Isle!
I'm itching to show Nicky's waistcoat, but I still have the button band to make...and some buttons to find.
