Busy Bees

Bee collecting pollen

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  Miss Peabody here!

Those of you using your Dodo Pad and/ or Acad-Pad diary will notice on 12 June the notation indicating the death of Karl von Frisch in 1982.

Frisch published his book The Dancing Bees in 1953.  By then he was well-known in the scientific community for his research on the behavior of honeybees.  Through his many experiments he discovered that bees have colour vision, and also that they communicate with each other using the “dance language” that describes direction and distance to food.  Bees’ sophisticated dances include the “waggle dance” and the “round dance,” each imparting different information about where to find food.

Bees are not only fascinating, they are extremely important pollinators of flowering plants.  Why, without pollination many plant species that we use for food would be unable to grow!  So you see, we need bees for more than just honey; they keep the links of our food chain intact.

We here at Dodo Towers are busy bees, as usual.  We’ve just finished photography for our new leather and faux leather slipcover collection and new ‘personal-pod’ organisers – designed for our Filofax compatible  refill diaries!  Those of you attending the Royal Cornwall Show June 10 – 12th should be able to see samples on display and pre-order one of the limited collection. Look for a special representative of Dodo Towers attending in Lord Dodo’s abscence.  Lord Dodo himself is currently enjoying a sunny holiday in the Dodolomites and regrets that he will be unable to attend the show in person.  But his favorite representative will be there to display some exciting Dodo Produce – so don’t miss out!

Toodle-oo for now!

Miss P
