photos can be tricky here. Make them smaller for a start then work from the camera icon
if you've got a mix you'll get a mix, totally unpredictable what's in in.
which clematis is it?
I think that's Erigeron karvinskianus.
I don't think the bug mentioned is in the UK Lyn.
Stachys lanata, called Lambs Ears sometimes. Likes. it dry and sunny and the bees love it. It gets a bit straggly but you can cut the stems off when the flowers are over
the early bees nests are mostly over, My Tree Bumbles and Bombus terrestris nests are both finished.
no, it didn't, it's just a bee. It just feels like that when one is checking you out.
Don't take any notice, you won't be stung if you leave it alone.
