    Indeed! No sun here today. Sure I saw a bee wearing a scarf ;-)

  • I didn’t capture this today but we had lovely Indian Summer weather so there were possibly a few around.
    But I’m sure the local bees were wearing scarves and woolly undies all week. Cheers, Kasia

    Superb!! We had a brief sunny spell this afternoon and there were a few about.

  • Colin, I was sure I’d answered at the weekend … Thank you! We’re enjoying a kind of Indian summer – sunny thougth cold. And the bees love it. Kasia
