The bee’s knees

I am told that bees are becoming a rarity, which is a loss as I love honey. I also enjoy watching them buzz around plants and seeing my brother run away screaming when they come anywhere near him.

Incidentally, Boo is really fascinated by English expressions he’s come across here: holy moly, blimey, the bee’s knees, easy peasy, oh dear, etc… and, his favourite, hey ho. We British do have an intriguing variety of ways of expressing emotion as sedately as possible.
