Luscious Locust

These days, the young black locust trees are decked out in outrageously cascading, creamy white blooms. Their wonderful fragrance is luring in butterflies and bumble bees, but not a single honey bee for which I planted the trees in the first place. I'm hoping the supplier will soon ring me with the welcome news that my order is ready for pickup. Meanwhile, native pollinators are making sure the bounty is put to good use.

Beautiful and fragrant black locust blossoms.

The entire tree is decked out in bridal finery.

A bumble bee digs into a sweet blossom.

Hm-m-m, simply delicious!
