I really like the ornate fencing (and the frits. are quite nice, too!!). I saw Monty too and was intrigued that here they are pollinated by blue tits. Nature is clever!

I've just read the scientific paper about this and in the wild these flowers are visited by passerine birds and our Blue tit is the same size and shape as those. A fascinating read. We will watch the ones in the back garden and see if they get visited. I have seen lots of bees and bee flies in mine.

I think I'll get Victoria to set up the Camera trap and see if they get a visit.
