There’s nothing better than a warm place, a bit of nectar, and a good snooze.
Without a doubt, this has been one of the mildest winters for this area. Even though I’ve lived in colder places like Montréal and New Hampshire, now that I’ve moved to the south, I don’t miss the snow at all.
On one particularly warm day in December, we noticed a large bee working on a new Meyers Lemon tree that we have waiting to go in the ground. He seemed a bit sluggish, until we realized that he had fallen asleep! Later, as the sun warmed even more, he flew on his way.
