Honey makes both my kids very happy ... we normally get given a few jars each time we go back to Scotland to visit my parents.  They have a 'source' of delicious honey from someone that is know in our family only as the honey man!  He breeds his own bees and sells small quantities to deli type shops around south west scotland.

But, the honey in the photo is not that sort of honey ... it's extremely special LONDON HONEY!  A lovely friend who moved into our old Camden street inherited a number of hives when she bought the house and her husband has become a convert to the powers of bee keeping.  He and his four year old son (if you look very closely at the jar it has a picture of him in his teeny tiny bee keeper suit!) now nurture those bees like you wouldn't believe and have already harvested (not sure of the right word for this!) quite a few jars of honey for their efforts so far.  I feel very privileged to have been given one of them and Ava and Jonah's delight at having it on their bagels for breakfast attest to it being a very fine specimen!  Viva those bees ...
