The Pacific Ocean has been pitching storms to the West Coast like a rookie on a roll. As a self professed non-whiner of Washington State weather, even I have had to bite my tongue and hold on to the belief that the sun will reappear on Puget Sound sometime before the Fourth of July. (Above: look closely to see the bees in flight.)
Today we’re have a weather teaser, a clear sky of bright sun that erases any recollection of rainy days. The bees are also out and not wasting a minute to forage for nectar divine. I do augment their diet with sugar water, as the pickings are slim this time of year. Bee does not live by snowdrops alone (flower below).
