Serving Larchmont Village, Hancock Park, and the Greater Wilshire neighborhoods of Los Angeles since 2011.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! We’re looking forward to a year filled with lots of buzzing inspired by these Western Honey Bees (Apis Mellifera) who were photographed visiting in this Grevillea Moonlight last spring.

Happy New Year to all our Larchmont Buzz readers! The start of 2021 marks the beginning of the Buzz’s tenth year delivering timely local news online nearly six days a week! Our readership has grown significantly since our founders Julie Grist and Mary Hawley began publishing in 2011. We now average nearly 20,000 visitors to our website every month, and more than 6,000 members of our social media hive have access to our daily posts.

As we embark on this new year, we draw inspiration from our industrious mascot, the Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera), to continue the work of sharing the stories of our community and thank you for being part our growing hive.  We thought you might enjoy some of our favorite photos of these wondrous creatures on this sunny New Year’s Day.
