Well the bees would give our 'wild flower' nectar bar the thumbs up if they had thumbs! Yesterday the area was buzzing!
The phacelia is the most popular at the moment. These bees were too involved in foraging to bother about me and my camera but the bumble bees were so excited that they just wouldn't stay still!
It wasn't just the bees stopping for a drink - the butterflies approve too. Unfortunately I haven't seem many different varieties yet in spite of the buddleias being in full bloom.
The white butterflies always home in on the plot though so the netting over our brassicas is earning its keep.
The bees however will always be welcome and I hope we're doing our bit to help them through the dreadful summer.
