Parc Monceau offers an oasis of sanity in the whip-smart 8e arrondissement of Paris. I took a stroll there yesterday to pay a brief visit to the beehives atop one of the park’s phantasmagorical landscape features.
For a breath of fresh air, here is a link to some great photos of Paris’s Bees (The apiary in Parc Monceau is at number 24).
And, with apologies to Peter Cook and Dudley Moore’s irreverent ditty: “Oh, dear Little Flo“:
Oh, dear parc Monceau
I love you so,
Especially for your apiary.
When the sun arrives
Full on your hives…
Oh Jesus Christ Almighty!
