French bees bounce back - A2

Busy honey bees in France - 17th June 2020

This is a beekeeper. This year, spring was very good for bees in France.

In March, April and May, it was hot. The air was clean and lots of flowers opened. In the north of France, bees made a lot of honey. Beekeepers got a lot of honey.

In the south of France, it was very hot. There was no rain and plants died. The bees couldn’t make much honey. Here, beekeepers are not very happy.

There is another problem. Covid-19 closed lots of shops. Beekeepers need to sell their honey. This is difficult. But the beekeepers aren’t worried. They can sell their honey in the future.
