I walk every morning before breakfast, usually just a short loop up to the church, past the pond to feed the mallards and moorhens and then home. Occasionally I need to go food shopping and I take the opportunity to walk up through Little Switzerland.
My Weigelia florida variegata is heavily in flower and yesterday it was buzzing with bees. They almost climb into the flower to reach the nectar and didn't seem bothered that I was trying to take photos.
I noticed one bee looked a little odd ...
I take it all back ... a few days of sunshine and the garden is positively buzzing and I've never noticed such a variety of bees here before.
If I had known then what I know now
I would have started this diary years ago
