Talkback: Leaf-cutter bees

Posted: 01/10/2012 at 06:35


I love watching Leaf Cutter bees  I always have one nesting in my greenhouse behind the wood with the plug on it and I have noticed some bees have been using my small bug box

I tried to take a photo of a leafcutter bee - if you look closely you may be able to see it

Good Morning Everyone

I hope you are better today Geoff

I would be upset ,too Kate

We have had to put up with our neighbours building lots of extensions but luckily the shrubs/trees mostly hide them now - not when I look out of the upstairs windows though!

I hope the worms are o.k Lottie  I wish your Grandad a really Happy Birthday and hope he has a great party

I won't join the belly dancers though - that would be just too much

Hoping to have a good day in the garden today - weather forecast is good Going to Homebase to buy some sacks of bulbs - it is a 15% discount day

Have a good day everyone

Another end of summer flower
