anonymous I would never ever harm a bee. I ought to explain the Wrenery is an open sided addition to the cottage. It has a glass roof which is the problem. They waste valuable energy endeavouring to get out. As the roof is high I need an implement to shepherd them out... hence the feather duster to gently show them the way! Just holding a broom aloft gives them the message without much style though. As I’m a style over substance sort of a woman the extending howsyourfather seems to fit the bill. Added to which visiting friends might think I have finally found housework!
