    Default whazz the buzzz

    We're all aware that bees aren't exactly thriving in our environment anymore
    ive seen wasps and bumbles all summer but dont think ive seen a honey bee yet
    this season ,
    Bees play a vital role in our eco systems, as well as bringing food to our tables, and as their populations continue to decline, we must take steps to protect them,

    so if you order food from deliveroo this weekend ask for a bee survival kit

    The kits include seed balls containing a mix of bee-friendly wildflowers like poppies and buttercups, along with directions for use and a handy set of tips and facts for protecting bees.

    Some ways for us to protect our bees is by letting weeds grow in our gardens (as they are an excellent source of food for bees), and planting bee-friendly plants like bluebells and daisies.

    well done deliveroo
    how he may read upon the varying skies,from thence to judge the order of his flies,
    how he may place them on his trailing link,know which should float,or which should partly sink

    Plant herbs, nothing attracts bees as much as flowering Thyme, Sage, Comfrey, Chives and Borage, except perhaps for our native geraniums.

    Cotoneaster, the one at the side of our house has been full of bees and wasps all through the time it was in flower. The Hosta has also had lots of interest since it came into bloom. As for Dandelions I can't remember the last time I saw a bee on one in our garden.
    Don't worry, be happy.

    Carried it in full, then carry it out empty.

    The 'urban rewilding' patch in the local park is very popular with honey bees - loads of them on it...


    The private garden strip on the other side of the fence has a row of lavender along it. It is very noticeable that the honey bees prefer the Euryops or whatever the yellow flowers are, while the bumblebees (and butterflies) prefer the lavender.


    Garden Cosmos is another favourite of honey bees...
