"B" is for (Fifty-One) Bees by Elizabeth Garrison & Victor Henderson (ABC Wednesday)

Created in 1996 by my favorite artists, this wonderful Fifty-One Bees mural (I count 24 out of 51 in the photo) located on the Southern California Flower Market building, received a face lift this year (pasadenaadjacent.com - here-is-there).

What an incredibly creative mural—and photo for B. I rather like my bees in that state.

Thanks Tash. Your the best!

The lower one is pre-restoration. The top I'm assuming is too, but it looks pretty good. The bee below (on the balcony) looks really good. Can you find out what date these were taken?
