Bees at the White House and in NYC

Two exciting developments had us leaping out of bed and rushing to blog this morning.

The first is this fabulous item on the City Bees blog about the new beehives at the White House. The photos here are borrowed from the blog; you'll definitely want to rush right over to the City Bees page to see more cool pictures ASAP.

The second installment in this morning's Department of Thrills is this friendly article entitled NYC Buzzing With Bees, about the NYC Beekeepers Association, our friends Andrew and Kelly, and the burgeoning interest in urban beekeeping here in our fair city. Check it out.

And while you're at it, do sign up to join the mailing list of the NYC Beekeepers Association to be apprised of the group's upcoming activities.

Does anyone know whether beekeeping is legal in Washington, DC? I'd love the source, if anyone knows. (what a stand, by the way.)

That is a very good question, and I honestly don't know. But I imagine if beekeeping were illegal, Fox news would have uncovered and made an issue of it right away. ;)
