Bees working my Crocus

While out in my yard, still cleaning up after super storm Sandy, I saw several bees working my Crocus, gathering pollen.  Can't seem to see which way they are coming or going to/from, so I don't know where the hive is.  Its a good sign though as I had thought the winter might have taken its toll on the feral hives too.  Maybe I'll be able to catch a few swarms this spring after all,
I thought that may have been asking to much.  My new bees arrive the last week of April, just in time for the flowering ash bloom.

The yard looks like hell from me cutting up the big tree.  I made ten or so slabs from the main trunk (table material) and have two huge piles of firewood.  The trunk had turned punky so I'm finishing it up into firewood.  Have slowed down considerably since I hurt my neck, but it hasn't stopped me.  Our next bee meet-up is next week, can't wait to here how the rest have survived the winter.  Later
