The bees must be very hungry here, I saw one valiantly trying to open a tulip bud today. This one found a poppy, it was lucky.
This little tulip, Tulipa Saxatius, did open, but it's a small species tulip the bee was after. I am impatient to see the colour seeing it was gifted to me.
Third photo is the new Hellebore I picked up when I went shopping. Looks like it will flower this year so might post a photo later.
