Talkback: Bumblebees in the compost bin

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 14:03
I have a Cottoneaster shrub,and is popular with bees. This year however, there are thousands of bees swarming all over it, going in and out of the little flowers. It is up against my fence, but my next door neighbour is complaining saying the branches are spreading onto his side and so are the bees. I can't prune it at the moment due to the amount of bees. The bees don't bother me one bit but my neighbours wife is getting a bit uppity. He said he will 'give' me a fortnight to allow the bees to disperse. What should I do if they don't go?

I also wondered if I have to dress differently for rain than I do for showers!

I still want to know the official difference between rain and showers and it's got nothing to do with the song 'April Showers'.   It is now the end of August and yesterday the weatherman forecast 'rain followed by showers'. When I go outside and I'm getting wet do I say "This is only a shower" or do I say "This is only rain". Is rain wetter than a shower or vice versa?
