Honeybee Festival at Norfolk Botanical Gardens

In Norfolk, Virginia we have a wonderful garden and I go there whenever I get a chance. This past Saturday was the annual Honeybee Festival and it was my first time attending. There was a lot of information on bees and beekeeping. There was local honey and beeswax candles for sale plus food and a lot of wandering around the garden. I had to check out the butterfly house and garden. It was hot out there in the full sun! But I saw quite a few butterflies. Taking photos of them is really a challenge since they are very busy in the afternoon.
