Hi All anybody notice the increase of bees in the garden compared to other years im really impressed this year the plants in my front garden south faceing in full of bees
Have you got any honey bees James?
lots of bees on the lavender and buddlia alll of sudden but alas an increase in cabbage butterflywho are laying eggs everywhere,hope something comes along to have a feast on some of them.
We've got a few honeybees in our garden , but in the main lots bumbles, various solitary bees and lots of tree bees. Also loads of hoverflies And I was saying yesterday, that I've seen more butterflies in the past couple of weeks than I've seen in the past five years all added together
i have had loads of bees on our Sorbaria 'Sem'. we have a few other plants they visit but they are all over this one particularly. great to see!
Yes I agree I have seen many more bee's and butterflies this year. Fantastic
I am however still waiting to a wasp this year, so far not a one.
Our wasps appeared about 3 days ago - perhaps yours are with them
hehe You can keep them Dove. They make me nervous.
Maybe our's might be around soon then.
I've noticed loads of bees as well, hardly any wasps though, thankfully.
We were in hunstanton and sutton on sea last week, We saw so many bumble bees and butterflys along the beach, i could not believe it!
