On the Patron Saint of Beekeepers

Are you (like me) single and a Sherlock Holmes fan? Have no fear, you too can celebrate Valentine’s Day today!

In addition to being the patron saint of marriage, St. Valentine is also the patron saint of beekeepers, and as all good Holmesians know Sherlock Holmes retired to the Sussex Downs to become a beekeeper and write the seminal work on the subject, “On the Segregation of the Queen.”

So, Happy Valentine’s Day, Holmesians! When you have a cup of tea with honey today, remember Sherlock Holmes and St. Valentine, the patron saint of beekeepers! 🙂
