My snowdrops are slowly expanding (reminder: buy more bulbs this fall). Yesterday was a descent day so I was walking outside despite another bout of bronchitis, and to my surprise found honey bees visiting my snowdrops. I had no idea they collected snowdrop pollen, and I was surprised they were already out hunting, although I was very glad to see them. (Should have figured out myself honey bees go after pollen as soon as possible.) My new camera Christmas gift takes good photos, harder to use, but fairly good closeups.
