Sweet!!!

This photo was taken by me for a sweet-themed photo project.

Some facts about honey and honeybees:

  • Honeybees have 4 wings and 5 eyes.
  • The queen bee is the busiest in the summer months, when the hive needs to be at its maximum strength. She will lay about 1,000 to 1,500 eggs per day.
  • A honeybee visits between 50 and 100 flowers during one collection flight from the hive.
  • An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey during its life.
  • Honey is the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water.
  • Honey speeds the healing of open wounds and also combats infection.
  • Honey and beeswax form the basics of many skin creams, lip-balms, and hand lotions.





Cheese… from Gouda

10 05 2009

I also like cheese postcards (I enjoy eating cheese as well ;)) so I’m going to show some cheese too and I start with the world’s most famous (and for me most nearby) Dutch cheese, Gouda! This wheel-shaped cheese is made of cow’s milk and has it’s origin in the area of the city of Gouda in the West of The Netherlands. The Netherlands started to export cheese in the Middle Ages. Since then, and the era’s afterwards, The Netherlands became world widely known as the cheese country.
