  1. Mother's Day is coming up on 26th March and we have some bee-utiful presents that would make Mum smile. We've put together our edit of gifts from our store that we think would make the perfect present...

    We have two homeware products from the Toasted Crumpet range that feature the most stunning bumblebee watercolour print. The fine bone china Bumblebee Jug and Bumblebee Dish are the perfect addition to any kitchen. Fill the jug with custard, milk or gravy at the table or a cute posy of flowers, and use the dish for snacks, dips or to keep jewellery safe. (Dishes are ready to pre-order for delivery from 6th March & the Bumblebee Jug is in stock now).

  2. On Sunday our founder Amber attended a free event hosted by Blooms for Bees in Coventry. The event was at Ryton Organic Gardens and in the morning there were talks by Steven Falk and Brigit Strawbridge, followed by a bee walk around the gardens with Steven in the afternoon. We thought we'd share a few photos from the day as there were SO many bees, it was incredible!

    These photos were all taken in the morning/early afternoon before the bee walk. There's so many beautiful flowers of all kinds in the gardens and we'd definitely recommend paying a visit if you're in the area (Coventry). On the Bee Walk with Steven we spotted 20 types of bees including bumblebees bombus terrestris, bombus locurum, bombus lapidarius, bombus pascuorum, apis mellifera (honey bee), and solitary bees like andrena minutula and andrena bicolor.
