Thanks all .it is Ph the garden has been buzzing away today you don't realise how many different kinds of Bees there are until you stand and watch them , I had the idea that I might photograph each kind but they buzzed about too quickly .....

We have lots of those newcomers from Europe they are called Tree Bumblebees ..they have ginger heads black bodies and striking white rear end , apparently they are 'Good Guys ' and are welcome here ... Have you seen them Ph .?

LOL I saw Bees like that Kathy they were loaded with pollen , I couldn't help wondering how they remove it from their legs when they returned to their hive perhaps they do a kind of rain dance to shake it off :o) it is a perennial Dawn I have this Blue one and a pink one ,the blue always flowers first , it's strange in that the pink one hardly produces any seed at least it didn't last year , I wil split you a piece from this later in the year :o)
