Summaries what "Collection" and "Collections" are can be found on their respective javadoc pages. I would define the "Collections Framework" as the set of all java.util classes that are related to collections.

Collection is the most basic interface for all collections in Java
Collections is a utility class providing useful static methods to use on Collection objects.
