    The same here, right now on foxgloves, early flowering poppies and geranium Biokovo

    I would be confident I have provided ĎBee heavení compared to everywhere else near to me. I walk my lab a lot and on my walks I also see few bees through areas of wild vetch and May blossom which should be buzzing. Such a difference to last year - Susie my lab last year used to park herself beside the lupins at my back door so she could snap at them when they arrived [never could stop her doing thisí]. This year she hasnít gone near the lupins.
    Lots of interesting replies - thanks everyone.
