    With a bit of added gold ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. – That’s exactly what I thought too! Those bees look very gold: perfect for this month!

    2. Heyjude says:

      True! I hadn’t really thought of that.

        Come on. You’re supposed to be setting the example ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Wonderful bees and wonderful flowers –
    having been demolished by the rabbits twice this year, my Echinops seedlings are still at the leaf only stage; I think we’ve missed it for this year!

    Great pictures!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pit. Not as sharp as I’d like but bees don’t keep still!

      1. Pit says:

        I KNOW about that! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Great shots of the bees. Its great that they seem to be thriving ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Well no shortage of these bees, but hardly any honey bees or hoverflies and no red-tailed bumblebees. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

    Now that’s a cheery sight to warm me heart on a rainy Auckland day ๐Ÿ™‚ Great shots, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Suzanne, glad it has cheered you up a bit. Back to typical Cornish weather today ๐ŸŒงโ›ˆ whilst the rest of the UK swelters in a heat wave still! Sometimes it feels like we live in an entirely different country!

      1. Suzanne says:

        That’s what happens when you stand out away from the crowds ๐Ÿ˜‰ The weather sounds like a tropical summer!

    Love the caption Jude and colours

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks PP, sadly not so many hoverflies or honey bees this year. At least not in my garden.

      1. pommepal says:

        With all your flowers, if they are not in your garden Iโ€™d say that is an indication, sadly, of their decline

  10. Gorgeous photos. We haven’t seen so many bees of late. They loved the aliums but they’ve gone over now. We have echinacea for the first time this year especially for the bees but they don’t seem to have found the flowers yet. ๐Ÿ™‚
