I had a dream about mason bee cocoons coming to life. Their imminent awakening is buried in my subconscious mind. These ladies from Mission were at the winter market selling their mason bee houses. These look like good systems. Apparently the toasting helps the bees use the pattern in the wood to find their way into hole sweet hole.
Once the spring mason bees are finished with the holes, you can put in these smaller holes for the summer mason bees.
These houses are cute and surreal, like little fairy homes.
Almost time to wake up, little bees!
