Spring Has Sprung

Welcome back everyone! Like the bees we were hibernating through winter but are ready to spring into mason bee action again. Though it's not officially spring (not until March 20th) some bees have already hatched and are pollinating the crocuses and other early bloomers around town.

I haven't yet seen any mason bees, but I've been keeping my eye out for them. Have you seen any around your garden yet?

Can you spot the bee?

In the next blog post this week I'll explain how to put up your mason bee house and give you tips on location. I'll also be posting pictures of my mason bee cocoons that I recently put outside to hatch and release.

It's nice to bee back :)
