I once say Wilhelm laying in a field filled with wild flowers. I went up to him, to ask him what’s wrong, thinking he may be sick, or hurt or something. He wasn’t! He was just staring at the flowers, waiting for his little bee friends to join him. He loves his bee friends!

Honorable Lord Wilhelm Meis was instrumental in starting a local SCA honey guild. They had their own pavilion at Norman Medieval Fair educating people about medieval bee keeping. His mother embroidered beautiful bee themed handkerchiefs one of which I got for a small donation. They also offered homemade chapsticks and blocks of beeswax for donations. (There is more I could say but I'll keep those for another time).
