Honeybees on crab apple, honesty, forget-me-nots...

Another day of rain today! but we have had some wonderful bee weather recently.

 Honeybees have been very busy visiting the crab apple.

 Crab apple April 30th.

  Activity really picked up on the Honesty, Lunaria annua.

 Honeybees are on the dandelions.

The forget-me-not, Myosotis....

 .... is a great self-seeder and makes useful winter ground-cover in the vegetable patch .

In sunny weather it is a sea of buzzing, foraging bees.
