The temperature rose to 70 degrees both Saturday and Sunday here in southwest Virginia, breaking records in many localities. Although I was still recuperating from a bout of flu, I enjoyed the fresh air in the backyard.
I put my dwarf lemon tree outside because it was covered with blooms.
The fragrance of the many flowers attracted honey bees from my two hives within minutes.
I missed when the witch hazel trees bloomed in the woods---probably in
December as I saw the whithered yellow blossoms on the trees.
With rain today and cooler temperatures (49 degrees), the bees are back inside their hives.
