These wild currants were just humming with bees today. None were domestic bees. Bumblebees and some mid-sized black ones, very sleek.
For the first time in years, no insect pests, no damaged wood, and a strong bloom.
The Earth is bringing gifts.
For her own. The siya? is hosting those black bees, too, but not the bumblebees.
That they came through the winter in such numbers is astonishing, given how burnt away with ecological drought last summer was. Sure is grand to see such strength.
