"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Belatedly, Happy New Year, I am just back from the sun in Spain. The sun feeling very absent here today.

Long ago, at the end of April, you mentioned Dave Goulson's new book A Buzz in the Meadow and I bought it. I have to say it was the best book I read this year and I then followed up by reading his earlier book A Sting in the Tail.

If you had not put the mention in your blog I would have missed the books completely.

So very many thanks

John Scurr - Thanks so much and a Happy New Year to you too. I hope you had a great time in Spain.

I am so pleased you bought and enjoyed the two Dave Goulson books so much. Its always nice to know when something you have put on your blog has had such a positive effect. Both books were the best I had read in a long time and I will read both again. Goulson has such a superb writing style and you learn such a lot without even realising until afterwards that you have done so. I went to a talk of his in Oxford on bees and neonics and it was excellent too. I was so glad I had made the effort to get there :)
