Bees help keep people buzzing about blossoms

You still have time to see the cherry and apple blossoms in Door County as long as Mother Nature continues to cooperate. The cherry blossoms are right at or in some cases a little past full bloom in Door County while the best of the apple blossoms are still to come. Orchard owner Steve Wood says the blossoms may be a touch earlier than usual, adding that they usually expect them to peak around Memorial Day. He says the cooler weather has been slowing down some of his most important employees at this time of the year: the bees he rents from an operator in Chippewa Falls.

Wood says once the bees’ work is done, they get picked up and likely are taken to cranberry country in western Wisconsin to help pollinate those plants. While it will become more apparent in a few weeks, Wood guesses that we are in store for a great crop of cherries and apples based on how the blossoms look.
