First Mason bees emerge

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 5, 2009

It’s the latest spring in our memory. Yesterday the meteorologist on TV said it was the first time in a month and a half that the forecast high came up to the normal temperature for any given day. A couple of days ago the first dandelions opened up. With a warm 20C the first male Mason bees cut through their cocoons. Notice the long antennae and white hair tuft of the male Mason bee.
