Talking about bees - and I was somewhere - I saw two in the garden today, one bumble bee and one which looked like a honey bee, although I could be wrong on that one, not being an apiarist. The bumble bee spent ages negotiating blades of grass until it found the perfect place to bask in the sun. You will have to look closely amongst the crocuses to see the other bee.


  1. I saw eight bees in the garden today (although two of them might have been duplicates). All bumbles I think. They seemed to be trying to get into my garage.

  2. Yes, mine tried to get into the kitchen when it woke up - perhaps anticipating a frost tonight, or maybe it liked the smell of the ginger cake I was baking. We need to know more about their habits so we can help them .....
