Look after the bees
I've noticed this year we have more dead or dying bees in our garden.
We plant lots of flowers in the garden that they love, it helps to feed them.
Californian poppies, thyme's and flowering herbs, wallflowers and sunflowers.
Even in the veggie garden we have flowers, the more bees we have, the better our veggies are as they help to pollinate the veggie flowers. WE NEED BEES.................
Finding foxgloves on a Devon hill this morning made me think Soggibottom has got to have bee boxes as well as bird houses. A bee needs somewhere to hibernate in the Winter. I'm not good at woodwork, but I know someone in the cottage that is. Excellent in fact.
Tony has promised to make some bee boxes and we will blog how to make them.
Lucky for you out there........his instructions are always better and clearer than mine.
I added the spider as I thought the art that went into making this big guy was very clever. I really don't mind spiders, maybe not this big............
