‘Don’t step on a Bee Day’. It’s sage advice. I once stepped on two bees at once and my foot swelled up to three times its size. I walked around with my itching, burning, irritating as hell flipper-foot for two days until the antihistamines kicked in. Of course, this day is for humans. Bees have their own safety day, ‘Don’t fly into a Windscreen Day’.
Bee reads: The Bees by Laline Paull (it’s not romance but it is fascinating).
