    Allison, great spot – I saw my first honey bee yesterday, but was too slow to take a photo. And highlights the importance of early nectar sources for Bees and other insects.

    Love the photos. I’ve never grown snowdrops successfully, but they pop up here too–in other folks’ gardens. However, I do grow bees…:)

  3. Oh how marvellous and what great pics. I just about heard a lonesome bee for the first time today, even so, it’s a sound that at this time of year always makes my heart skip a hopeful beat.

    I love to see Bees working, they were busy on the Mahonia yesterday in the sunshine.

    Lovely photos – especially love the bee close ups! Must be nearly spring if the bees are a-buzzin’! I was reading that the temperature has to be above 10 degrees for them to be active.

    • Thanks Jane. Last week’s temperatures were in double figures here, so that makes sense. We are back to hovering around freezing again now though, so I doubt that I will be seeing any this week.
