Early Shrubs Flowering

The fairly common shrub black twinberry (Lonicera involucrata) are one of the early flowering bushes  in the Bella Coola Valley.  This week a lot of the bushes are just starting to flower.  They aren't really spectacular when they flower, rather inconspicuous, but they are enjoyed by the bumblebees and hummingbirds which are starting to arrive.  The cedar waxwings really enjoy the black berries on these bushes when they start to ripen in 6 weeks or so, but not much else seems too interested in them.  Grizzly
