Pussy willows and cold bees

Pussy willow bee

I love the sequence of changes in spring, almost predictable but not quite. Pussy willows and blackthorn blossom before dandelions and birch leaves, willow warblers before martins. It must be a shock for all of them when the weather flips back to winter. Yesterday this bee was searching for some calories on some of the last pussy willows in Coalpit Den.
