Yesterday I saw my first bee of the year, and not just any bee – I think she’s unusually beautiful, and look how happy she is! 🙂 Covered in fresh pollen from a crocus, just what she needed after the winter.

There were loads of thistle flowers in this field, but all bees were fighting for a spot on these two. Must’ve been particularly tasty! Or do they follow some kind of ‘the busiest restaurants are the best ones’ logic?
