With the return of longer days, sunshine, and flowers we also welcome the return of the honeybee, our diligent friend who helps bring us orchard fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Symbolic of hard-work and efficiency, and also more recently a symbol of the green movement as bee colonies collapse and amateur apiarists take up bee-keeping around the world, the honeybee is also worth celebrating as a design element. From queen bees to honeycombs, here are a few beautiful items to get you in the mood for warmer weather.
