While walking through the backyard and garden the other day I heard a loud humming, droning noise. It was a contant, steady noise and I realized it must be insects, but where… and then I felt silly after looking at the large Pussy Willow tree. It was blooming earlier than any other tree or plant, and covered in yellow white flower heads. Thousands of bees, flies and other insects were all over the tree, but mostly the bees. I keep thinking about getting a beehive… The day was one of the first warm days of spring, and the insects had emerged with the sun. I’m looking forward to a few more warm days ahead!
