    I’ve never paused to think how bee’s knees might have come about. I’ll think of you next time I say it!

    Isn’t it amazing how many bees there are in our gardens even in March. I had no idea the expression was really alluding to bees, thank you.

    • The fruit blossom is just starting here and that is when things really get going with the bees, but open crocuses are usually the first thing I really notice them on each year.
