Copper Bee Apiary

A garden apiary in Whittlesford, Cambridge, UK - honey bees and their beekeeper Hilary van der Hoff.

Me Made Mead

Hilary's harvested honey,
expertly extracted,
fabulously fragrant,
mixed, melting melifluously
with warm water,
and assorted acids,
fermented for fourteen fortnights,
slowly sedimenting, so sporadically siphoned,
clearing cloudiness
before boozy beverage becomes beautifully bottled,
prettily packaged,
graciously given
for family/for friends, for
Xmas xxxx
