Bees and Poppy Flower

I wonder if bees can get addicted to opium?

Hmmm... good question. Seeing as that elephants and primates are attracted to alcohol, I don't see any reason why smaller animals would not like intoxicants. Everybody happy happy.

Did you manage to "tarpau" any of those seeds back to KL?

We can do some side-biz in my garden.
