Make Hay (Honey) while the sun shines.

Today the crabapple blossoms are falling to the ground due to the rain. 
Hopefully yesterday's perfect weather allowed the pollinators to complete their work.

 By mid morning the whole tree was humming with the sound of various bees.
Similar to birdsong, the pitch of a bees hum can identify it's species.

The buzz of a bumblebee being far deeper

than that of the honey bee.

The Kerria was also attracting it's fair share of pollinators

Spending a few minutes hiveside can render a diverse pallete of pollen colours,

In my view, the most spectacular is the blue pollen from Scilla sibirica.
