Honey bees on viburnum tinus, crocus, rosemary and gorse.

 Photos from sunny intervals today and yesterday.

Pale purple crocus.


Purple crocus in full bloom.
The stakes at the end of the hive were to hold it down during our winter storms.

The Rosemary was covered in bees.


There were many bees on the Viburnum tinus.
The honeybees appeared to be collecting an off-white pollen .

 Gorse.

 
There was a bumble bee nest under this pile of stones last summer.
 Now the early tete-a-tete daffodils are enjoying the shelter provided.

There were at least 6 Bombus terrestris  queens enjoying the crocus today too.
