I would love to have my own bees. These bee hive systems seem like a great way to do it. Flow Hive allows honey to be harvested on tap, which is easier for humans to harvest, and less stressful and harmful to bees.
martha stewart's bee hives: behind the bee hives is anise hyssop, whose soft, anise-scented leaves are used as a seasoning, as a tea, & in potpourri. bees love the purple flower spike & they make a light fragrant honey from the nectar.
