The Hummmmm

I'm not sure what's going on here but I have never seen the cherry trees so heavy with blossoms. The smell is so sweet.

When I stepped under the tree today to take this picture, I was stopped in my tracks but the sound of the bees...having a field day! I just love to see bees hard at their work. I was reading this winter about how the bee population is under a lot of stress and is dwindling. I'm not sure if the general population has any idea that the loss of bees would have a huge impact on nearly everything that we eat. I'm glad to have them here.

Mark and I were just commenting on how loaded the trees are with blossoms this year. The trees by the library smell like Razzles - I swear!
