Mason Bees

The mason bees are still in their tubes. The weather here is still cold and more bad weather is predicted. I am only hoping it will warm up soon and things will start to buzz.
The photo I have taken today shows one of the tubes up close. I am not sure if that is a little bee I can see or not.

Dear Cheryl,
Any day now your bees will be out!
I am so excited about your Mason Bees.
So far I have not seen any coming to my bee house and it has been warm enough. I will be patient!
Hope your temps warm up and your bees emerge soon.
Rain for my gardens.

They are such sweet little bees. The bees will come Sherry, wait til your apple blossom comes out, then maybe.

Cheryl, if this is a duplicate-just delete it. I have been having trouble with blogger tonight. Anyway...That IS a bee! Must be hard for you to wait for them to come out. Soon it will be warm and stay that way.

Yes Beckie it is hard... they really do need to come out, but the cold weather is stopping that. In the last four years I have never had a problem with them. The weather has messed them about so much, I must confess I am a little anxious.
