    That Laburnum is just stunning. It’s so similar to our Cassia fistula. I just love it. Your ‘Golden Sunset’ Azalea is just wonderful. What a fabulous colour. I adore the white one too though.

    Your garden looks terrific. The Syringa is especially eye-catching. Susie

      Hi Jane, thanks for the comment, all your fault that I am now hooked on photographing bees ! I have even purchased a Mason Bee nest box which I hope will increase the fruit yields in my garden next year.

        Glad to hear I have some influence somewhere somehow, Bill 😉 Wanted some bee boxes myself but we have very little sunny area, morning or afternoon, because we have so many trees (it’s only 1/2 acre) and there is no suitable south facing site for them. Having said that, we do have many solitary bees and other pollinators, so they must be living somewhere close!
