|Buddleia Miss Ruby 1st flower|
Daisies and dandelions are blooming. Blackberries look like they are about finished. I don't know where the bees are foraging now. Not a lot of bees on the Ceonathus or blackberries, this weekend.
This is the first flower on Buddleia X "Miss Ruby". Missed photographing a hummingbird visiting this flower. No bees on the Buddleia, either.
About one month ago I received the second beehive I bought via Beethinking.com. Put it together, and the top didn't quite fit. Today I took it apart, trimmed the endpieces, and put it back together. The top fits now. Next week, I might paint it. No hurry. I probably won't add the honeybees until next April.

I take back what I said about honeybees not foraging the blackberries. This afternoon I looked and there are many bees on the blackberry flowers.
The hive is less than 10 feet from the brambles. Good location, I think.
