My OH keeps bees too so I am also an avid bee watcher. They've been out on days which were warm enough and I've seen them on mahonia, heather, crocus and pulmonaria. I did see an enormous bumble bee about 10 days ago - heard it'd buzz first - it too was on the mahonia (now fading fast). I tried to take a pic but it wasn't very good - will see if I still have it. Cheerypeabrain your pics are lovely - thank you!
