About 2 weeks ago, on a warm day, I was strolling in the neighborhood and spotted several lawns on Birch Avenue covered with Crocuses.  They are the first flowers I have seen this year and they were alive with bees!  It is too early for Crocuses really and since then it has been cold and they are all closed, but seeing the bees is perhaps a sign that the bee population is coming back with gusto.  Let's hope so.  These were fully open as you can see, welcoming the bees.  The pollen was spilling out all over the petals.
Spring has officially begun!
