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.
Last night I followed a twitter thread debating the pros and cons of beekeeping versus supporting the increase in our native pollinators.
