I moved 20 hives to another yard 30 miles south of me and went to check on them today and found them very busy.










Here is a link on info on the tree itself. :-Dhttp://www.floridata.com/ref/p/prunus_c.cfm

Now isn't that Cherry Laurel a simply beautiful and astounding shrub.  I can bet the bees were going nuts on this one.

There is a plant here (too invasive for me to want to bring it to my place) called the Japanese Knotweed that a friend of mine has.  She says that the bees absolutely love this plant.  Hers has not spread, (she should consider herself lucky).  But what I see of the knotweed, it has kind of similar flower clusters as the Cherry Laurel.  Interesting.  Great day.

I'm jealous. We got another 2 inches of snow today.
