M. Shakmundes certainly did have an ominous look on his visage Virginia, had to read the story to see it wasn't you he was glaring at..as if!!A 'honey shop' sounds so sweet!

Quand on voit la quantité de pesticides répandue dans les campagnes, on peut penser que les villes seront le dernier refuge des abeilles.

What a GREAT shop. Guess I'll go downstairs and make a cup of tea with a little honey.

When I live in Paris again, I'll gladly go out of my way to buy honey from M. Schakmundès!

I'm a big honey fan in tea and on toast. Is the round honey discs with the bees on them edible?

Hi Virginia , I have actually been to that shop, on my very first visit to Paris, .. we were in that area having a a Blogger meet up lunch .. and actually last week, my friend Brigitte who lives in Paris and I were talking about Honey shops, and I told her about this one , she did not know it was there .. did you know about the Bee Hives on top of (I think) la Opera .. I think that is what it is called .. it is amazing.
