The Chestnuts are in full flower. There is an all invading aroma in the air; you can't mistake it.
The local Beekeepers have brought in their hives by the dozen, firstly to pollinate the Chestnuts, then later the Sunflowers.
Bees need water, so they make directly for the nearest supply; OUR POOL!
I'm on reasonably good terms with Bees, but we do get quite a lot of them. I lift them out of the water on my hand, when they accidently fall in. They haven't stung me yet.... well maybe only once or twice.
