Why do all bees around your garden have so long noses, SL? I have never seen this sort of bees here. :) :) :)

Kat i grow loads of plants for the long nose bee as they are a bit fussy over what they feed on....

Never seen one of these before....what plants attract these
SL....mores to the point do they live up here in Scotland?

never seen these before, fab shot :)

they like Honeysuckle or Aubrieta, any long trumpet flower really, but honeysuckle is their fav.. they should be every where Scottish but they are rarer now....

Thanks Beverly :-)

SL- If they like Honeysuckle most of all, as you said, then it is intriguing how this plant got its English name :)

which name Kat, i've heard of a few ~ Honeysuckle, woodbine, goatleaf ~

I think Kat means the "Honey" in Honeysuckle.?

But I think that is because the nectar in Honeysuckle is said to taste of honey though Katarina.

Ahh i see cheers Pp, i'm having one of my moments :-))

9 Apr, 2012

 

...I meant "to suck the honey"...Honeysuckle...

9 Apr, 2012

 

I see..Katarina. We saw the bees sucking the honey and named the plant thus.?

9 Apr, 2012

 

You do not need to do that. Generations before might do it, Pp :)
