Huzzah indeed! The Consort has a ginormous forest of some sort of plant growing out of the planter at the corner of the driveway and sidewalk, which is *full* of gleeful honeybees. So far I have dissuaded him from cutting it all down even though it currently blocks the sidewalk and half the driveway, because, happy bees.
Sadly, the produce of another friend's sour cherry tree was riddled with maggots. :-(
