Pollen Baskets

This bee was hard at work and had already filled his pollen baskets 
when I found him busily at work in these yellow flowers 
in the Tilden Botanic Garden on our haiku outing and picnic there in 2014.
What a beautiful day that was!

First day of spring--
I keep thinking about
the end of autumn.
