I walked by several basswood in Boston yesterday morning. One of them had started to bloom, but I saw no honeybees....my guess is most of them are blooming by now.

I caught this picture on my walk yesterday as well as the milkweed.... These are the very first blooms I've seen for both.... Most of the tree has not broken out yet but agreed in a couple of days we should be in full swing.... Nice also that we had (at least here on the south shore) a bit of rain.... The nectar can be significantly decreased if it's too dry..
