I’m delighted to inform you that, this week, we do have adorable Swedish children in beekeeper suits.
ICYMI here at GFY this week:

The Brits are also excited about bees!

Click through if you want to see all these pics. Google translates for me to say: “At 11.00 today, the Crown Prince family walked down alone outside Skaugum. At the gate they met representatives of students, choirs and corps in Asker.Four Russian presidents were also present, and they were presented with their own banner from the Crown Prince family – who thanked them for following health advice during the Russian era.Then it went off in the classic vintage cars A1 and A5 on surprise visits. The trip went to Solgården housing and care center, Borgenbråten community and activity center a housing cooperative on Borgen.” In addition to being Maxima’s birthday AND mine, May 17th is also National Day in Norway, which is – as best I can tell — somewhat like their version of 4th of July (to contextualize it for Americans).
