It was so exciting to see a trio of bees really working over the crocus in my front yard this afternoon. Other bees were gathering pollen from my neighbor’s patch of crocus. If you blow up the more horizontal picture below, you can see the bee’s back covered in pollen.
Crocus are one of the best bulbs to plant in the North because they bloom early and provide food for bees when very little else is around.
I have seen any bees in our garden yet. Lucky you!
