We also have quite a few old horse chestnut trees over 100 years old which have beautiful candles in early June. They also seem a bit late this year as they have really just come out. I caught a bee this morning feasting on the nectar or pollen in a candle. He was quite stunned by the 46 degree morning temp and yesterday's 3 " rain so I had no problem taking his photograph.
All photos taken on morning of June 9th which documents the lateness of the lilacs!
