OK, I’ve got to make a confession. I hadn’t realised quite how gorgeous the humble honey bee actually was until today.
Just look at it! cute as a button! (come on guys admit it, you know you want to!)
The honey bees were going mad for the last of the geranium flowers. Almost fighting over them.
Just three dying flowers left and every one of them with a honey bee, if not two.
So let’s hear it for Apis mellifera the honey bee.
We MUST do everything in our powers to stop this creature from dying out.
What will I be doing?
I’ll be planting a lot more bee friendly plants in my garden next spring to give these critters as much spring/summer/autumn nosh as they can manage.
Has anyone got any spare geranium?
