An interesting guest visited my mason bee condo yesterday.

Given this longer-than-normal winter on the Canadian west coast, it’s too early for the mason bees to be in residence. They’re still in the fridge, hibernating, waiting for the apple blossoms to open.

So, sadly, the fuzzy visitor didn’t get much of a welcome. But I was happy to see her, another suggestion that spring is near.
