I try to stay away from pure “nature” Pic of the Day shots. Every image should have some identifiable part of Westport — or Westporters — in it.
I’m making an exception for this exceptional photo. Alert “06880” reader Morley Boyd wrote yesterday:
With the reasonably warm weather, our honeybees came out and quickly discovered all the wild crocus growing on Violet Lane. Shortly thereafter, they began returning to their hive with the pollen baskets on their legs loaded up.
For some reason, I always take comfort in these early signs of spring.
