Busy Bees

Well, our plum tree, right next to the terrace, has had 2 serious hair-cuts in the last 2 years. This year, it obviously appreciated it and it is covered in flowers. It looked really nice for a few days, when it was full of tiny white flowers, but none of the green leaves had quite peeped through. Thankfully, we also had an influx of very busy little worker bees at the same time. Each time we went down the stairs by the terrace, we could hear the tree buzzing! In fact, it was even on the news this week, how happy the farmers are, with the number of bees about, pollenating the flowers. If only a fraction of them turn into plums this year, I will be very happy.
