" The first fine day we’ve had, we went for a stroll,. and saw this chap out gathering necter"

“Vital pollinators of crops and wildflowers, bumblebees are particularly effective with tomatoes, as their buzz frequency releases large pollen loads. All bumblebees form small colonies, visiting flowers as far as 2km away to feed on the nectar and gather pollen. The pollen coats the bee’s hairy body and is then combed into a pollen basket. Usually, only the queens survive the winter, so there’s no need for bumblebees to store large quantities of honey in the hive. Of the 250 known species, 24 are found in the UK but only six of these are a familiar sight in our gardens.”

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.

My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    Like you, she’s an opportunist taking advantage of the day, eh? Grand shot. Our bumblebees are all sleeping soundly, I think, even though it is VERY warm today (63 degrees F; 17 C).

  • Gosh I waish it was that warm here, cheers Shelia
