April Blooms and Bees

This smaller cherry tree made it through the snow and ice earlier this year.  I know the bees and hummingbirds are missing our 3 large cherry trees damaged by the ice.  See them in bloom in this link.  We had to cut them back significantly so no blossoms this year (but a few new limbs are sprouting now).  

The mason bees are busy today.  Here is what their house looks like.  The fruit trees are blooming too, so they must have what they need.

Star magnolia.

I'm hoping to have mason bee's next year to help pollinate our fruit trees, they seem like the perfect helpers! Cheers, Jenni
