Patricia at Garden Works will be doing a seminar on “The Secret life of Mason Bees”.  She has been looking after mason bees for 14 years and has had all kinds of adventures with mason bees.  She at one time nurtured bees in a aquarium because they had emerged way before spring blossoms opened up.  She fed them by presenting blooming heather to them every 2 days and successfully released them when spring really arrived.
