returning



It has been a long time since I've seen so many honeybees on the corn tassels! Today, they were here in large numbers!



Standing nearby, I could hear the humming of their wings.



I could see the little puffs of pollen falling from the Staminate flowers down to the silk (stigma).



I could see their corbicula or pollen baskets... and thought of the bees returning to their hives with the pollen from my corn.



Welcome back, bees!

Hurray!! Welcome back! And welcome back to the bats. I heard them the night I sat out watching meteors and I saw one sleeping in my gable attic vent.

Oh this is delightful! I hope the bees are hardy and will return next year. You should have some good corn too.

Oh - so wonderful. The corn here was set back with all the rain - so not as far along as yours.
