Honey Tasting and Lace Making

These are the bees that made the honey which I sampled straight from the honey comb at Alston Hall Summer Fair. Sweet, delicious and totally natural.
I bought a pot of lavender honey made from the pollen of local lavender.

These beeswax candles were also for sale.

There were as usual, lots of homemade crafts for sale but the most interesting part for me was watching a very clever lady make lace. Incredibly intricate and requiring a huge amount of dexterity and patience!

Not a craft I'll be trying anytime soon. x

  1. My goodness, that lace-making looks completely bonkers! Impressive. I'll stick to eating the honey, methinks...
