    First blooms about 6/9, in full bloom now. Not normally known as honeybee forage, but our bees are working it eagerly.

    Basswood. 20176, 6/17/14

    I have lived in this house for seven years and this is the first time this tree has ever bloomed - I didn't even know what it was and never paid it any attention. When I walked out this morning it was absolutely covered from top to bottom with honey bees and bumble bees. I looked it up and discovered it is a Basswood, also known as a "Bee-Tree". Perhaps it was our extended cold winter that kicked it into gear.
