Bees are a buzzin' on the holly bushes

Check out videos of the huge numbers of honey bees buzzing my flowering holly bushes on April 15, 2013.  I'm thankful to see them in my garden because there are so many concerns about bee colony collapse disorder causing huge decreases in bee populations.  I'm attaching a link to a New York Times Article which discusses the Federal Government's findings:

Bees on the Nellie R. Stephens Holly

Yaupon Holly

We built a Mason Bee House to encourage additional pollinators to the garden.

Here are a couple of close ups of the honey bees
