I saw this growing under the bird feeder.... very pretty... left it there ....poisonous but the birds know that and the fox that visits there to suck up the sunflower seeds doesnt give it another look. I removed some. They have a symbiotic relationship with the Silver Birches and There is one very near ..so scientists are right🥰

Thank you @Anonymous
The garden is mature now and when that happens everything works better.
I took a photo not good because through glass of a group of Gold Finches under the feeder picking up sunflower seeds they are difficult to see they look like the leaves on the ground. You may like this.

Interesting @pgn
Know what it's not ... but what is it...
It must be a type of Bumblebee.
Too early for Solitary too early for honey bees.

I must have one of the largest semi-wild colonies non-commercial.
