You know I love it! Lovey dubby
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Nom nom Hilarious! food for the little ones back in colony. Is that a bulb-type flower? I've only ever seen bees stop by our flowering trees, but might be neat to get them a flower they like! And it is such a gorgeous golden yellow! Hurray!

I remember that day! such a glorious spring for the bees Lovey dubby and a lucky shot, Thank You!

@chalyse, that there is a bulb--some kind of species crocus--wonderful little early spring cheer for all in places with winter, and I don't think they would be very perennial without it. But there is such a vast variety of flowering plants to feed the bees, I'm sure you could find one or two that would be pleasing to you, a magnet for them, and closer to the ground than the trees

Ahhhh crocus, I remember them from four decades in the wonderful midwest! Lovey dubby I did try some tulips and you are right, bulbs are not happy with sandy heat.

But, you prompted me to learn more Thank You! and found that bees are local creatures attracted and adjusted to native pollen sources (thus their visits to our tree, I guess).

I'll have to try some native fuchsia for closer to ground visits, then, in hopes that I can finally catch sight of one and have a chance to get it on film! Group hug
