  •  The mason bees (7+ / 0-)

    were the workhorses in my orchard.
    In cold and rainy weather, they were hard at work while the honeybees sulked in their hive.

    If there are no dead trees close to your garden or orchard, you can make a mason bee house with a coffee can stuffed with paper straws.
    Cut the straws off flush with the rim of the can and hang the can horizontally with the entrance protected from prevailing winds in a shady spot near the edge of your garden.
