Mason bees are solo females,
effective pollinators who
seal themselves in with mud,
regenerating through dormancy.
( I can relate- longest winter ever!)
But you can feel the wisdom of it
the tenacity of gathering mud
creating your hermit space in time.
The bees filled in almost every circle
It didn’t happen the whole first year
or maybe even the second.
I’d kind of given up
So it was an unexpected joy this March
to see the holes filled,
I highly recommend it
and it’s a leg up for our pollinators.
