Was he famished because of the awful weather do you think, how clever to know how to help him

He was very wet and cold, Pamg. A bit of sunshine might have helped but just rain here today.

Well done on saving your little friend. I wonder why he was like that ?

That's so heartwarming to read Gee. I have seen one or two lying in the borders lately.Looked a bit late to do anything.

Clever you. Well done.

Lovely blog Gee, it wouldn`t have occurred to me to do something like that, well done you..

Brilliant Gee, you are a saviour. I rescue too :). Such pleasure when they fly away, mission accomplished.

Was thinking of you and the tortoises today actually as I have lots of the plants they like ... can't think of the name right now - has the fleshy hairy leaves with orange flowers. :)

Well done Gee, you were rewarded for your kindness, I did the same last year but with sugar and water no honey in my house!

Carole, I only had honey because I made honey flapjacks a couple of weeks ago. I must admit I don't like it so was happy to share!

Now you've got me thinking, Dawn, I just can't remember the name of that plant. I think it was Amy who told me what it was originally. It was something like hare and hounds or ducks and drakes!! The tortoises aren't enjoying all this wet weather.

My OH done this a couple of months back, he spent most of the day checking on him & feeding him. Now any bee that comes in the garden is HIS bee, as if there is only one, Lol.
Well done Nurse Gee :-)

great blog Gee and lovely photos, i was told sugar water as giving them honey amy cause dissuption on the honey they make because it could be a different type than they make, makes sence i guess, but still a good job :O))

You can't Bee too caring Gee. Now I know why I have seen 4 or 5 dead bumble bees on the path to the garden shed. If I see a sleepy one I'll try same thing with some agave syrup. There still seem to be lots in the garden as they like Alliums and French Lavender and the flowers on the Heucherers. A dreadful, long, squally storm with heavy rain has not long hurried by. The Hawthorn was like a whirling Dervish.

No sign of any bees or other flying insects today - far too wet and windy. Sounds like it hit us both at the same time, Dorjac. I did manage to prise Millie out of bed for a short walk but neither of us enjoyed it! I think today is a day to cosy up indoors :)

Thanks for the lesson Gee, shall know what to do in future .... silly me thought when they lay like this they we so full of necture they were too fat to move.lol.

8 Jun, 2012

 

Hi Gee, I've remembered the name of the plant now - close .... fox and cubs, lol.

9 Jun, 2012

 

Well done, Dawn, I was still coming up with animal combinations but not the right one :)

9 Jun, 2012

 

Lol, me too x

Ah well saved Gill , we have a new Bee here thats come over from Europe it's called a Tree Bee it has a ginger head black body and a white rear end , it's reported to be a 'Good Guy ' they like Cotoneaster flowers ,we have had lots on ours , I did take a photo but they dart about so quickly , glad you remembered the Fox and cubs Dawn :o))

That's interesting, Amy, I will look out for a Tree bee on my cotoneasters. I haven't seen many bees as all lately, I suppose because of the rain. We got to Fox and Cubs eventually, well Dawn did :)
