First bumblebees of the year

Saw my first flying bumblebees of 2012  today.

These two were visiting these flowers near Victoria Station in the centre of the urban jungle in London. (map)

Saw her first.

and a moment later she came along too.

Trying to get the name of the plant.

    You had a little snow! Over here it was quite mild (which I don’t mind, since I don’t like the cold). The fruit trees sound good, I’m lokiong forward to see what your other plans are for this year. Have a happy New Year’s Eve!

    As for the bees they look like Bombus terrestris queens, I think? Excellent shot of the pollen colour.
