lead beehive

Title says it all really. Pops has a bunch of lead farm animals and soldiers from his childhood, finally unboxing them (cue unboxing video...). Prob not PC to let kids play with cast lead now... that were painted with lead paint no doubt... chipping all over the place. They feel so heavy and quality though.

Pops does infact have 2 actual beehives, and yes we have had a few colony collapses (and once the queen just zoomed off then they swarmed/moved.) Great older bit below from Eddie Izzard, 'Covered in Bees'.
