French Pussy willows

beegood_gwApril 3, 2010

For the first time ever my bees are working the pussy willows. Also a lot of mason bees. Even had a big wasp fly into my house. Didn't know they were about yet. Well this one isn't anymore. One less to harass my bees.

The bees were collecting pollen from my crocuses this week. I'm still waiting for the pussy willow that I planted last year to open.

As you know...my french willow, honey bees have never touched them ever for at least 8 years or so, today I seen poplar pollen, [gray] and native willow [yellow] coming in. Perhaps you got a different french willow?...Can you post a picture from your willow with bees?

This is mine..
