 Busy bee 🐝  (Soleirolia soleirolii (Mind your own business))

Spotted this lovely bee nestling into my ‘Soleirolia Soleirolii’
this afternoon...loved watching it disappear into the plant..having a little rest possibly.

Perhaps she found a sweet spot to build a nest.

Lovely to see the bees flying and collecting pollen and nectar from the flowers. Bumbles build their nests in the ground, so perhaps she has started a nest underneath there Kate.

I’d be happy if she did, Linda..anything to help the wildlife along!

Sometimes one makes her nest in our bird box. We really have to look after our bees as they are on the decline.

You are so very right, Linda! We really must do what we can to help.
