Bees, butterflies, birds, insects, flowers, trees, I think perhaps a garden is one of my favourite places to be.
Now, team that up with a chair, a book and a sunny day – it just can’t get any better! (Okay, maybe we could add in a cuppa there!)
Sitting outside I can see the apple and cherry blossom are looking their best ever this year in the garden we’ve tried hard to make as bee, bird and butterfly friendly as we can.
I’m so glad we did, especially after I finished reading our latest book group choice; The History of Bees by Maja Lunde.
It is a sobering thought to consider a world without bees.
With this in mind, I’ve joined the Great British Bee Count (on until June 30th 2018). Hopefully every sighting will help to inform the national Pollinator Monitoring Scheme.
What’s next? I have a copy of ‘The Bees’ by Laline Paull sitting on my bookshelf, time to switch the kettle on and find that chair in the sun!
