The apple tree is heaving with blossom and I am hopeful of a very good crop of our delicious apples this year except for one thing……..there are no bees!

We had a cold start but it has been warm and dry for several weeks now and yet there are very few bees flying. Even last weekend with several consecutive warm and sunny days I hardly saw any. I have a bad feeling………..
