We have bees now! Last year for Mother's Day, we picked up a nuc of bees and installed them in a hive. We managed to NOT kill them (bees are surprisingly fragile for being so universally feared) over the winter and actually managed to split it and capture a swarm as well. Now we have three bee hives: two here and one in my parent's garden. Anyone who thinks that keeping bees is easy has COMPLETELY LOST THEIR MIND. Fun? Yes. Rewarding? Oh yes. Has the ability to make you feel like an Eco Warrior for helping "save" the world bee population? Most definitely. Easy? No way!
