A couple weeks later, those flowers still going. This shot to show the leaves and compare siblings in a group of trees planted all together.

The bees were positively swarming those flowers... I don't think they have a lot of food right now (the background color tells the story). The bee activity is concentrated around the flowers which most recently opened, rather than the ones lower down. Presumably that's where the fresh pollen is.

Thank you for the kind words and the acorns, folks. Smiling Much appreciated. It's always fun to hear people's reactions to a banner.

My favorite part is the bee near the left posing for the camera upside down. Smiling
