Oh, Beehive!

Being something of a plant nerd (I am my mother's daughter) I couldn't not check out the Spring Festival & Plant Sale at the UBC Botanical Garden , which Bob posted about the other day. An apiarist exposes the inner-workings of the hive.

60,000 bees live in this exclusive bee condo at UBC. Location, location, location.

The canopy walkway is incredible, offering a chance to experience an aerial view of the forest from hundreds of feet in the air. The narrow (and wobbly!) suspension bridges are great fun and left me feeling like I'd had an Indiana Jones adventure on the planet Endor. Needless to say my inner Ewok (yes, I have one) was pleased. This excursion would be great fun for kids, so if you have one in your life you should take them. Unless they have issues with heights, in which case you may want to avoid it and just enjoy the nature of the garden. Leave your canine at home though, as they are not permitted on site.

And yes, there are many beautiful plants and flowers to admire. Don't you love walking through a forest and hitting a wall of perfumed air? Ah, spring.
