What am I doing besides eating, drinking and shopping in Paris?
I am going to honey festivals.
Every September, I seem to miss the honey on sale made from the bees at the Jardin du Luxembourg.
They sell out quickly, there is only a small window in which to purchase it.
My reader Carolyn from Seattle is in Paris for the month (lucky girl), and she emailed to remind me of Les Fetes du Miel on the weekend!
Merci Carolyn. :)
We visited the bees in their antique houses that live in the garden and work on keeping the flowers, pears, and apples all so beautiful. These bees are hard at work.
There is an Apiary Society in Paris, and a long history about the bees in the Luxembourg Gardens.
Since the honey is so scarce, and only sold once a year in September, they only allow you to buy one jar per person.
So, I pretended not to know Henry, so he could buy a jar too.
They didn't believe us, but they laughed and let us buy 2 jars.
