home sweet home
in the brick pile
A few years ago, we had an extension built on the back of our house. At the front we had a large pile of bricks and granite cobble stones dumped. They stayed there for a long time while we found a buyer for the granite.
I that time a few bees started turning up in our front room, which was a mystery as we hardly ever opened the window in there.
While investigating the air bricks in the wall, I discovered a bees nest in the pile. It seemed ironic that our discarded building materials made the perfect home for them.
