bee's knees

My sister is visiting this weekend from Chicago - she just finished her finals and is celebrating with me here in Brooklyn!! Yay!!

Today we went the the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens centennial celebration - BEE DAY!! Their bee themed birthday party was filled with lots of fun things to do... music {the Django Experiment}, gardeners, honey of course {New York City rooftop honey}, art and lots of fun things for kids. 

We spent hours there learning about keeping hives from the local bee keepers (bee keeping just became legal in NYC in 2008, which is really exciting!!), looking/smelling the flowers, listening to music, etc.

Pictured above is my lil' sis Annie by the centennial birthday sign, who has a really cool blog, winged correspondence, check it out; some pollinatin' bumbles; a bee display; a display of seeds from local flowers that attract beez; me having a moment with some tropical flowers; lil' bug takin' a snooze in the leaves; obligatory antennae pic; sister's being sisters; and more tropical flowers.
