Knitting Bee

20 May

The neighbourhood knitters of Newland Avenue have been at it again this time on the theme of bees. I wouldn’t fancy being stung by a brute this size. Any hoo, it’s World Bee Day today so I guess this fits in with all that. I’ll buzz off now.

Bee and Burdock

1 Jan

Asked by City Daily Photo to post my favourite photo from the year just ended I pondered for a while but in the end  it had to be this close up of a tree bumble bee enjoying the nectar of a burdock flower. These bees were first spotted in the UK as recently as 2001 but are now quite common, they’ve even nested under my kitchen roof and, of course, they are most welcome.
