Happy World Bee Day! Did you know it is celebrated on the birthday of Slovenian Apiarist Anton Janša?

He was educated as a painter, but was employed as a teacher of apiculture at the Habsburg court in Vienna.from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_Jan%C5%A1a

My sister has a nice habit of buying cyclamen for her kids each winter .As  I bought one myself last week the spring seems nearer; it will be easier to wait for the first cyclamen in the woods. A little poem goes like:C is for cyclamen-do not try to hide from us for your smell is telling where you are………

And indeed, the shy cyclamen smells so strong, you cannot miss it, as kids we wandered the woods to find the very first ones…..

Searching for more details for this post I found lake Bled district ,Slovenia,  has special dark variant of Cyclamen purpurascens: can’t wait to find it -I promise a post  ; )
