New Crocus and Visitor

The first bees are appearing very early this season. Climate change.

As average monthly temperatures rise, flowers bloom earlier in the spring,
creating a potential mismatch in seasonal timing between when
flowers produce pollen and when bees are ready to feed on that pollen.

Top notch picture, Tom.
It is scary at what speed the climate change is proceeding.
We had not one day with real snow so far, just a bit frozen fog the other day...
