    I love seeing the sheer number of bees that a garden designed around them can attract. It’s fascinating to see the different types we regularly get. Currently at the front the nepeta, astrantia and lupins are attracting loads of bees and we have bumblebees nesting in the soffits so they don’t have to go far to get a meal. Yesterday was red tailed, tree bumblebees and white tailed/ buff tailed (can’t tell which). The carder bees seem to particularly like my rasps at the back. Get less honeybees but still a few.

    Swarm of honey bees settled in a quince tree. I walked past the hive just as they were swarming ... very noisy and I got bee poo on me

    One of the resident robins at the allotment has baggy pants.
    It appears to be doing all the normal robin duties such as taking food away to a nest.

    Couple more days and I'll strim down the primroses. Seems brutal but they come up stronger each year.

    I think this is an Alder Leaf Beetle. Fairly rare but slowly making a comeback.

    I think this may be a goldfinch. Mobile phone picture so quality not too good.

    The foxes that come in our garden have been pulling up my peas. Had to create a kind of barrier to dissuade them. They brought a random half chewed glove in the other night - can only assume they were playing with it. I do love them though so forgive them any minor damage and the fact that they poop on things like my sons’s footballs.
