I haven’t seen any bees on the helebore -- yet -- but I’m hoping they’re getting some nectar from these early flowers.
There was ice on the bird feeder this morning, but it wasn’t very thick. I have to admit I have no idea how honey bees, birds, or small animals of any sort manage to make it through long cold winters.
I think I’ve gotten awfully spoiled living in Georgia. Of course, in exchange for mild weather, I’ve given up being able to see the stars at night. Sometimes I think it’s worth it. Sometimes I don’t.
BEEattitude for Day #498:
Blessed are those who help the birds, for they shall see joyous feathered flights.
