Early nectar corner


Hi Everyone
I wonder if like me everyone thought spring had started a couple of days ago. The weather was warming up here in Lincolnshire, but sadly it has turned a bit chilly again.
The bumble bees have been very busy visiting the corner of the garden where hellebores and pulmonaria are growing.

The Viburnum Tinus is still flowering well. Sorry, the picture is on it’s side!

And the Primulas nestling between the logs

Looking forward to the official start of spring and lots of colour in our gardens. Happy springtime everyone.

bees have been out and about here too and over the winter the ivy has been a haven for the insects including the bees.

Yes I love to listen to the bumblebees buzzing round the plants - we usually get a bumblebee nest I hope we do this year - your plants are doing well Jane

Thank you for your comments. I'm not very technical,but shall try and add photos as plants come into flower. We are getting lots of bird activity at the feeders as well, wish I had a better zoom lens on the camera.
