Signs of spring

Out in the garden today Phil, one of our guests, thought there was a bees nest close by. The humming came from by the walnut tree and when you stood under it the sound was quite loud.

Looking up, we saw dozens of bees pollinating the walnut catkins.

Of course this called for a quick trip inside to get the camera.......

Two of the bees in flight above our heads


The two of them settled on the same catkin,

Then it was off to visit the daffodils...

A sure sign that spring is on it's way!
