Honey Bee Friendly Flower: Apple Blossoms

I was looking through some old photos and came across a photo of blossoms from a crab apple tree in my backyard when I lived in the city (in St. John’s, Newfoundland.) These blossoms are not fully opened, but they’re getting there. Although I don’t have a photo of a honey bee on the blossoms, I know the bees pollinate apple trees, so I’m adding it to my Newfoundland Honey Bee Forage list.

Hey, I just found this photo, a slightly raggedly looking crab apple blossom:
