Yesterday I was very surprised to find a lone honeybee foraging for pollen in a patch of crocus blooms on my lawn. Since all my hives were winter killed and it will be at least a month before my replacements arrive, I can only conclude that a) a feral population is in the area or b) someone within a couple of miles is also keeping honeybees. Miss Buzz wasn't talking.
