It’s lovely to see and hear so many busy bees over recent days. And different varieties too. There seem to be an increasing number of big fuzzy bumble bees alongside the other smaller ones, all buzzily going about their buzziness… This one was going diligently into the heart of all the snapdragon flowers, one after the other. Very efficient.
The allotment site beehive is also alive with activity. The bee lady has put a sweet little birdbath adjacent to it to make sure they have water nearby. The honey bees seem particularly to like the miniature marjoram cushion, as well as the allium flowers. I counted 12 of them yesterday, on a plant the size of a dinner plate. The more I looked, the more there were!
