This is not beekeeping related, but I feel the need to write about it.

A visitor to my local area might think we’re celebrating some kind of festival. Yellow ribbons festoon the lampposts and park railings, their cheerful colour waving in the breeze.

But there is nothing to celebrate. A month ago, on the 28th August, a young 14 year old girl named Alice Gross went missing. Like me, she liked walking and had gone out for a long walk alone along the nearby canal running through Hanwell.

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience.

Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.

  2. I saw that update. That probably means the family will never really know what happened. There seems so much sad news at the moment and I am finding it hard to deal with. Perhaps exacerbated by the days shortening and the end to regular beekeeping for a while. I was glad to reblog in case it was of use – thank you for expressing it so well.
