Ground Bees

We have a major miner bee colony in our yard. Or, should I say yards, as they’ve spread. They’re cute little bees and don’t bother. They’re good aerators and come to their holes with lots of pollen, a welcome spring addition to the “green” garden.

We have plenty of bubble bees, too, bumbling about. Out kicking the ball, they fly in and check you out for sweetness, then buzz off where ever it is they go on their rounds. Some of them are fairly large, about the size of my thumb.
