Easter Flowers

Easter is early, winter is late. Few flowers are blooming in western Pennsylvania.

This weekend my surviving crocuses opened fully to receive a visit from a honeybee. He emerged with pollen pantaloons just like this bee in Marcy Cunkelman’s garden.

The bees are happy to find flowers this Easter Day.

    Happy Easter, Kate.
    I think the deer are very hungry this spring, they are eating my crocus! That is the first time I have seen that.
    Too many pigeons and sea gulls at 40th and 62 bridges to have peregrine nests.
