Not a thing in the garden in flower :(

It is usually a Queen house hunting at this time of year :nod: . Be ready with your Chirms just in case you're selected. :)
PS I have violets and primroses available for any hungry bees.

Another bumble today, just bumbling around, presumably apartment-hunting. This one was ginger but with a black posterior and slightly less friendly than the February one. Some folks :shrug: .......

Feeding the birds this affie and upon my return to the cavemouth I espied a large bumble on the grass. Bad news :eek:.
Prepared some sugar water and served it up but until dusk, no movement. Don't think we've won this one - but this has worked in the past.
