The older I get the more sensitive to cold I become. That means our chilly spring has kept me out of the garden. And, though the sun has been shining a bit today, it’s still cool, especially when the wind kicks up. The old cherry tree is beginning to fade.
The cherry tree is beginning to lose its blooms and there are small green cherries taking their places. But there are enough pollen-filled flowers to attract native beens like the mason bee above. I bought a solitary bee house last June when I got back from the Garden Bloggers’ Fling in Toronto, and noticed this afternoon that one of the chambers is full.
