honeybee on winter witch hazel blooms

---, Honey Bees

My honey bees are out and about today. Its a crazy odd February. Down to -15F once, and then so many balmy 60F days. Bees like to get out and poop in warm winter weather but there isn’t much food for them. This winter hazel in bloom in my backyard is one of few pollen and nectar sources. I planted it last fall and I’m so happy to see it in bloom!
