    I find that when one listens to a hive close to, it sounds just like a sound track of an F1 race ! Bizzy li'l critters, aren't they !

  • I have a large hedge in my garden which flowers every year and attracts lots of bees and hasn't failed to do so this year. However, last year I visited a castle and underneath a tree there was probably well over one hundred dead bees. I have no idea what did that but yes, Bees definitely are in decline.

    Bees as individuals aren't long-lived creatures. If there'd been a wild bees's nest in the tree then a hundred dead bees on the ground below it would be quite normal. image

    I have hundreds of bees also, they are covering the 8ft tall echium, i have lupins and foxgloves, soon will be the allium and echinops.

    I sometime wonder if we all atract the bees to our gardens, will that benefit the commercial growers?
