We have been busy shipping mason bee cocoons and mason bee homes to our customers.  There is always lots to do.  Over Easter we visited our family on the Sunshine Coast.  I was alerted to a store sign about Mason bees.  I drove to the Sunshine Coast Nursery and took a photo of their great sign.  The photos is slightly out of focus, but here is what it says

MASON BEES ARE
SUPER GOOD
BRING THEM TO
YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
What a great sign to let people know that mason bees are being sold at this store.
 I hope everyone is enjoying our wonderful spring weather.  Margriet
