No shortage of Bumble bees here!

posted in: General

We have no shortage of Bumble bees in our garden. They absolutely love the Eryngiums, whereas the honey bees don’t go near them. Yesterday, I stood and watched them for ages – no social distancing for them or me! They were coming and going all the time. Sometimes, first thing in the morning, I see one or two that have obviously been there all night and seem to be snoozing until the air warms up and then off they go. Perhaps they have drunk too much the day before and were sleeping off their hangover??
