Its worse than what they are saying about our Bee demise
We took Charlie pug for a long walk through Milford and along past the marina onto the cyclepath. I notice to my delight, that the sides of the cyclepath and hedgerows were full of wild flowers and blossoms. My delight soon turned to disappointment as we made our way along the path. No bees to feed off all these flowers. For the whole of our walk, I only saw two bees, this is an unfolding crisis. Our food supplies are going to suffer, I have planted lots of wild flowers around our garden to help the bees but if they have all died, I may be a little too late.
On the brighter side, while I was installing my green house a couple of bumble bees called into our garden. Even better I discovered a wild solitary bee living in my compost heap, a little orangey furry buzzing ball. Today I watched him collecting pollen from my broadbeans, what a happy little chap. Charlie the pug did not seem to impressed has it buzzed passed him on its way back to its nest.
