It's funny how there is always the potential for a bit of mischief around here! My latest project is to develop a wildlife garden down by the caravan site. I've always fancied doing it to sort of showcase what you can do and knock up a spot that's useful as well as interesting — I want to put some fruit trees in and some bee loving plants, as well as some live willow sculptures. As part of my plan, Dave the handyman has brought me a beehive. Now Dave and his Dad have a whole load of hives and collect beautiful Cheshire honey — we even sell it in the Overwater reception. The difference between his and ours is that sadly we won't be able to put the real deal in ours — just in case they decided to swarm and become killer bees, buzzing and stinging their way around the marina, destroying everything in their path........OK, maybe I'm being a little too dramatic now (I blame it on the 2nd coffee I've just had). Now where was I? Oh yes — back to the mischief bit, not knowing my plans — it's been hilarious watching people's reactions to the hive — from mild interest to complete horror...can't wait until I put the signs up for the water buffalo.....
