"Sweet As Honey" is the thirteenth episode from the fifth season of Barney & Friends.


The kids decide to plant a garden...a window box garden...with many different varieties of flowers. Barney, the gardener, encourages his friends and helps them with their garden. Everyone is busy, each with a different job to do, and as they work together, a busy little bee, visits one of their plants. This sparks some discussion about bees...that they are insects, that they pollinate plants, they make honey, they live together in a society, etc. The Adventure Screen, a ‘cooking’ segment, and a visit from Mr. Boyd in his beekeeper clothes highlight their day. Scooter is wary of the bee, but Miss Etta helps him to learn to ‘bee’ careful, and gives him a treat with the bee’s yummy honey!
