Spring has arrived early this year after a mild winter. Migrants have been here in full force. Red-winged Blackbirds and American Robins blanketed the neighborhood for days and Sandhill Cranes were seen high overhead. All that planting you did last year to provide blooms for pollinators in late winter and early spring is now paying off.
In Georgia, we are lucky. With a little planning, something is blooming in our yard every month of the year – important to have something for the pollinators. Warm weather and sun the last few days have brought out the blooms and the early pollinators. The short video taken yesterday afternoon shows just how many and how many different kinds of pollinators are attracted to the plum tree in bloom.
