it’s not a sign of spring. The leaves on the trees have mostly popped already anyway, but it was the ultimate sign of hope.
I went out to the garden to check the progress of the sun in an area I want to prep for later in the summer. The buzzing next to the garden￼ Was so loud I wondered if flies might have been attracted to some poor chipmunk that had attempted to steal squash leaves in the presence of Princess Jane. As I walked toward the apple tree on the west side of the garden, however, I saw hundreds of tiny worker bees￼ toiling among the apple blossoms.
i’ll go back to try to capture them with a better camera, but they were patient as I tried to snap a few pictures as long as I didn’t interrupt your work. I greeted and welcomed them, knowing the returning bees are more than just a sign of spring. They are a chorus of hope.￼https://pickingmybattles.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/img_9003.mov
