Hazelnut pollen

Posted by blueberrytalk on February 20, 2009

The temperature in the shade has reached 10C in the afternoon after freezing at night. The bees are able to venture out in search of nectar and pollen. In perfect timing the hazelnut catkins are covered in pollen. The pussywillows are out and will soon be ready for foraging bees when the hazelnut pollen is done. Incoming pollen will stimulate the bees to raise more brood.
