This past weekend, I met my daughter, Becky, in Washington, DC. One of my wishes for the weekend was to take a photo of the White House beehive. Of course, you can't get anywhere close to it, but we could from two fences away, see it and take its picture. The location under a beautiful tree facing south is just lovely.
I'm glad they situated it where the public could get a glimpse of it. I think everyone knows that there is a beehive at the White House because it has been in the news and because beekeeping magazines have featured it. But when I've said to friends that I am going to take a picture of the beehive, they to a person, said, "There's a beehive at the White House?"
Below you can see it in relationship to the White House from the Ellipse.
Just to record that we came, Becky and I got someone to take our picture together. The woman, who didn't know we were interested in the beehive was thrilled to tell us that she got us both with the White House just over our heads. I, of course, was more excited that the beehive is over my right shoulder (very tiny!)
Here you can see the beehive on the right side and the vegetable garden it is supposed to be pollinating on the left side of the picture.
We also saw, I'm sure, White House bees, when we toured the US Botanic Garden. There were bees on every blooming aster.
