Bees and blossom.
Not all of the mason bees are out of the units yet. I have never known such a strange year with them. They have been all over the place just like the weather. The old girl still refuses to open her blooms, still waiting for the females to leave the units. Will her timing be right,I don't know, but she has never let them down. All my other fruit trees are in blossom, but she always seems to play the waiting game.
Anyway yesterday was sunny and two little mason bees fell in love and did what came naturally.
Finally the fruit you see in the picture is the old trees, last years fruit, organic, healthy produce from a friend. Hopefully in the next week or so you will see her in all her glory.
