Just bees ~ by Chris

Just bees

Not a blog in the usual 'woodlands.co.uk" sense, but here are some jpgs of bees that have visited my garden.  In early Spring, there seemed to be very few honey bees or bumble bees around - so I was a bit concerned.

However, these last two or three weeks have seen them buzzing around - on the lavender (they particularly like that), the teasels, the hollyhocks - with the occasional visit to nasturtiums and sunflowers.

Great photos. Made sure I planted lots of bee friendly flowers this year and like you was concerned that there didn’t seem many bees around however suddenly a huge increase of them during the past few weeks of lovely weather we had.
