Salix Caprea Pendula

Weeping Willow at Tagawa Gardens.

Pollen is the sole source of protein in a bee diet. The first pollen found by flying worker bees on a warm winter day from such flora as maples, alders, skunk cabbage, or willows signals the colony that spring is coming. -- George Imirie, Master Beekeeper
