“Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.”
~ Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

You’d think it was spring here but it’s not. It can still freeze for another couple months. But the bees totally love our blooming African Sumac trees right now. There are hundreds visiting and partaking of the sweet nectar. I do wonder where their hive is, though…

  1. It’s good to see a honey bee again. There were very few around here the last few years, although we seemed to have the normal numbers of bumble bees.

    This time of year it seems so strange to think of blossoms being open and visited by pollinators. Spring seems so far away.

  2. Hi Candace,
    It is so bizarre, refreshingly so, to see bees and blooms! My world is a frozen bit of beautiful whiteness. You’re really getting some nice macros these days. Bravo!

  3. What I would give to see a bee! I have a friend in Mesa who said it was 77 degrees Feb 14. I’m in Chicago and well, you can only imagine the bad weather here. The photos are so cool looking and I’m envious of your weather.
