It is being said that this year there are fewer bees than usual, with various reasons being given. At Mount Stewart there seems to be no shortage of them, they are everywhere. There was one half dead on the grass so we lifted it and put it into a digitalis flower to see if it would recover with some nectar. After a few swigs it was off doing it’s busy stuff. Smiley faces all round.
Working with Jonathan in the Peace Garden today, tidying up and spending a very long time working under the Philadelphus bridal wreath with its amazing scent. The scent spreads itself all through the Peace Garden, it is well worth making a visit to it.
