PLEASE . . . . can anyone identify this tree?
For several days now it has been alive with bees; the buzzing is constant and although the flowers are like a closed bell, the bees are all over it like a rash.
A friend told me the name - and I've forgotten it!
It started something like 'Crino . . . .' because she said,"Think of Crinoline to remind you, but of course I can now only recall the Crinoline bit.
