We are continuing to leave areas of our garden a little wilder this year, in order to provide food for bees and butterflies.
It’s still a little early for many of the butterflies, although I did see a swallowtail a few days ago, but we do have a lot of bees visiting, and hopefully pollenating our fruit as well as the wildflowers.
This one has found a scabious. There have been a lot of these bees (at least I think they’re a type of bee) in the garden this year. Our neighbours have some hives, so they could be visiting from there. I’ll have to ask for part shares in the honey!
