These alliums have done so well and they have an attractive perfume, the bees love them.

I have been surprised how many bees have been visiting ours too. I didn't think there was that much nectar in them. Yours look so nice. I love your penstemon.

I agree ... Bees & Hoverflies were all over mine yesterday in the sunshine ... too grey for even the insects to come out today ... : o ((

Thanks HB... Shirley the same here rained this morning, but was able to get out this afternoon, OH dug out a 3ft Virburnum Tinus bit of a nightmare but it's out and a new shrub has taken it's place.

You two just don't sit still, do you? ..... Michael went to the allotment at 8am when it was dry ... returned an hour and a half later ... almost soaked to his skin! So pleased I declined helping him to dig today ... lol!

Very wise of you to decline......I have to have a cunning plan Shirley otherwise I get bored.

Well, I maintain our garden, Mums too, and assist on the allotment! Bored, never! ..... Oh, I must tell you Mums comments on the dark leaved Dahlias in her front garden, they're newly planted this year, lovely deep reds and oranges, but she said, "Well, that's not right is it, love? Those stems and leaves should be green!" . . . . . : o ))))
