BEST BOTANICAL SHOP (2006)

The Apiary

Walk into Jean Snow's Apiary and you'll find every nook and cranny loaded with untold stories of long ago. The aroma of orange blossoms emanates from a tree in the window, and Snow's motto -- "Nature makes the most amazing things" -- manifests itself on every shelf, as it has for more than thirty years. The shop pays homage to the apiary that Snow's father kept during her Connecticut childhood -- beehive lamps, beeswax candles and a delicate white hornets' nest hanging from the ceiling -- but it also celebrates her sensibilities with her own picture-perfect dried-flower arrangements, plus horn-shaped Tussy Mussies, botanical art, pheasant eggs, French linens and sweetly scented soaps. Something this divine is everyone's beeswax.
