Wordless Wednesday: Mason Bees Make an Appearance




We have two new bee houses in the garden this year.  Neither seem to be inhabited yet but today we had our first sighting of one of these important solitary pollinators this afternoon.  I think its an orchard mason bee but I'm not 100% sure.  Hope to be seeing many more this season though.
