Sunday in the Garden

Sunday was warm, highs in the 60s (F). The Crocus were open. And the honeybees were swarming over them.

There are at least five (5) honeybees in this photo. Can you find them all?

This is the third year for these little Crocus tommasinianus. They've grown into this small grove from just a handful of corms. Here's how they looked in March 2007:

The Eranthis in the above photo have not persisted. You can see how the Crocus have thrived.
