Bird, Bee and Bugs
Last years bird nesting box, THE BEE BOX and we have a new BUG BOX.
The bug box was made in the same way as the bee box except it has four sides and holes for the bugs to go through.
In this case the holes are in the shape of an S for Soggibottom. It also has a lift up lid so we could renew the bug material inside. Wood shavings, dried leaves.
The bees are far too quick for us to catch them on camera going in and out of the bee box, but they have found it already. Placing it in the shelter of honeysuckle must help.
Our vegetable garden.
Picking is now in full flow if you can see the beer bottle, they aren't all mine.
Some of them might be, BUT NOT ALL!
If you can remember back in the Spring when "someone" had the great idea to spray paint the fence because it would be quicker than a paint brush
Mr Mud.......also sprayed the plants, the pond, next doors car that was parked behind the fence at the time and Amie. A green Cavalier is not a pretty sight.
The plants have all grown back and it has all recovered.
Our neighbours were very good about their car. Thankfully it washed off.
Amie cleaned up after a few days.
He is forgiven and we love the new blue.
