Yes this last week I have found 2 dead bee's on the path, 2 on the cosmos & I mean on the cosmos in the centre of the flower. Bizzare that they died whilst filling their boots. I just hope they died happy.

Also  I found one in the greenhouse a couple of day's ago, I feel guilty but I did not see if when I closed the door the night before. The morning after I noticed it sat on the bench alive but exhausted I managed to get it to walk onto a plant label and placed it outside on the monarda, a couple of hours later it was dead.

I'm sure that's cheered you all up no end, But I feel better for my little confession.

You are not on you're on Peter, I made that mistake myself a few year's back. Following summer not one flower. I now do exactly what PaulaH does with the hydrangea.

Shame about your tree Mrs G, Stacey It breaks my heart seeing mature tree's felled start a petition to save it just to wind them up.  Jon that is funny of you're old neighbour calling his home oak end. Though i'm sure it was not funny at time.

FG I will try the subtitles next week for beechgrove. normally i'm fine understanding accents, but that bee keeper guy lost me completely.

Anyways busy day for me today, unfortunately that was not in the garden.  I've got time tomorrow but no doubt it will rain. I'm going outside in a little bit to see if I can see this comet flying over. Is anyone else bothering? Hope you are all well.

Beechgrove Gardens is much more informative and in a more realistic size.   Monty is very good but doesnt realise his three compost bins are the size of a lot of gardens.  I really enjoy the down to earth approach of the Scottish Gardeners and the disasters as well as success.     I also agree that we dont have enough gardening time on our tellys well done Tim Burr your comments are right on the mark.

I like Beechgrove aswell, In many way's more realistic weather to me, being in the NW. On this week's episode when they did the bee's, that guy they was talking with. I had no idea what he was saying, but it looked intresting.

lol Zoomer looks like you have had a nightmare trying to grow winter spuds.  I am now starting to think that I have picked the wrong time of year to learn how to grow them. Like you if I  get to eat some I will be happy.

Can you identify this shrub for me.

Is It Bay or Laural related?
