  1. Some of those companions are one you would probably rather not have! This week I have been witnessing some very destructive Squirrel activity in my plot. I suppose they are digging around to find nuts etc that they hid last Autumn.

  2. Isn't the wee snail fabulous! {wish they were not so destructive, as they have lovely shells and markings} and I love how the bee is hugging that bloom!

    1. The snail was cute, Deborah - I just wish it would move elsewhere.

  3. I wouldn't mind a visit from the bee and bird - the snail, not so much :)

    1. The robins have been singing to one another constantly, Margaret. Very cheering.

  5. That's a handsome Tree Bumblebee. Like the robins too. I guess snails are part of the picture too but I hope the robins eat them!

    1. I'm guessing that the bumblebee was a queen, Mal. I wonder whether she will take a liking to my bug hotel!

    2. This early it will be a queen. Tree Bumblebees are notorious for adopting bird nesting boxes (which is maybe why they have spread so swiftly in the UK)!

  6. Though no gardener want to see a snail, you've gotten some marvelous photos of one.
    And love the cheery bird. Robin? I know your robins look so different from ours.

    1. It is a robin, Sue. If you go to Martyn's posthere He has posted a video of him singing so you can listen to what his song sounds like.
