Bee visits.....

 Whilst working in the garden today, I noticed a queen bee on the heather.     Woken from her slumber due to mild weather, nectar was on her mind.
 There are plenty of blooms around.     I know I often speak of the joys of Mahonia but it really is one of the most beautiful shrubs you can have in a winter garden.   The bright yellow blooms bring light on dark days and the perfume is sweet and intoxicating.    There were several honeys bees amongst the flowers today.
Primroses surround the old apple tree, making a pretty scene.    Thinking that Spring has arrived they are blooming away merrily.

What a strange year it has garden seems to be in a state of confusion.
