Hoopoes and Honey

Catching up with a friend who has moved back to Germany has been so lovely. We share a fairly leisurely rivalry in who can see the best birds!  Hence the interesting design of the socks below.  My only hoopoe was seen in Spain: that moment when you say “hoopoe – can’t be”.  Matching kingfishers seen in the Wye Valley with the oh so common Germany residents of crane and stork is not easy!  A bee keeper, she tells me facts that make the fancy jar of honey so much more treasured than my current “everyday value” tesco honey.  Which is having to be dug out the jar as it has set, rock like.  Real honey it seems is an art – a lengthy process made with skill.  It’s always interesting to compare notes on the amount of grey each of us is acquiring too.
