How to use wild cards to find files beginning with upper and lower case

Im trying to use wild cards to find files that start with either an upper or lower case letter e.g. list files that beginning with b or B, i also want to sort them by the time they were last modified. e.g latest file created first.

At the moment i have the following code that
ls -d B* -lt

any suggestions ive tried pipping them as followed ls -d B* | ls -d b* | -lt but had no luck
