Garden visitors, during this heatwave.
« on: July 04, 2018, 16:43:00 PM »
I keep the three bird-baths full, as the birds use it a lot. But, there have been a LOT of other visitors, during this weather.

Bees. Hundreds of them! They've been quite sweet, too. They're all there, having a drink, when I just went down to check them and I saw that the bath was nearly empty. So, I got the hose and went to the bath to fill it up. Being mental, I told them not to panic and explained what I was going to do.

Bugger me, if they didn't all just hover above the surface, whilst I filled it up and they kinda loosely swarmed around, then went straight back to drinking!

This may seem odd, but my cup runneth over. :)

bees die when they sting so only do it as a last resort.
I jumped off a bridge in Paris.

Our bees have become used to me, I don't even get the "Bog Off!" swooping from them now.

Lulu's allergic to bee stings. She's not learnt, though, stoopid animal. :)
