Bee hives at Castle Fraser earlier this year 🐝 ✨
The National Trust have partnered with a local community group to help increase the number of bees in the area and production of local honey.
What a fantastic initiative 😊

✨🏛 On this day 🏛✨
On this day in ... 1946 justice was served upon the Nazis that led Germany and Europe then the world down the path to hell in 1939.
The Nuremberg trials (German: Die Nürnberger Prozesse) were a series of military tribunalsheld by the Allied forces under international law and the laws of war after World War II. The trials were most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, judicial and economic leadership of Nazi Germany, who planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in the Holocaust and other war crimes. The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg, Germany, and their decisions marked a turning point between classical and contemporary international law.
Of those found guilty, the following were hung until dead on this day in 1946; Hans Frank (Governor General of Poland), Wilhelm Frick (Minister of the Interior), Alfred Jodl (Uppermost General), Ernst Kaltenbrunner (SS Head of Main Security Office), Wilhelm Keitel (De facto Minister of Defence), Joachim Von Ribbentrop (Foreign Minister), Alfred Rosenberg (Racial theorist), Fritz Sauckel (Head of Slave Labour), Julius Streicher (Publisher of Anti Semitic newspaper). Adolf Hitler, Herman Goering and Heinrich Himmler had earlier committed suicide, Reynard Heinrich assassinated and Adolf Eichmann would later be tried and hung by Israel.
So ended the Thousand Year Reich, crimes against humanity itself that in the end delivered justice following a trial they had earlier denied countless millions. ✨🏛 @fiftyshades_of_history 🏛✨ 👉🏼 @baedavenerabalis 👈🏼

“But if you please to do the office of a true loyal mistress and friend, and to give up yourself body and heart to me, who will be, and have been, your most loyal servant, (if your rigour does not forbid me) I promise you that not only the name shall be given you, but also that I will take you for my only mistress, casting off all others besides you out of my thoughts and affections, and serve you only.” Henry VIII
