All you're sad or merry in, / You must tell the Bees.

Telling the Bees is a blog devoted to (obsessed with?) bees. Bee lore. Bees in 15th century art. Dogs who look like bees. Bee cakes. Bees and indie rock. Bees and comedy. Bees and Sylvia Plath. Bees and bees and bees.

The name of the blog is a reference to a curious folk custom.

What about the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark the bees fly out and sting you.

By the way, I know the people who keep Mr. Gaiman's bees, which is a claim I never expected to be able to make.

You never know what's going to turn up in some of these obscure bee journals... like the first report of the invention of the airplane.

The eye-gouging colors are a crucial part of the what on earth ambience of the blog, in my opinion.
