Busy Bees

I have quite a few flowers in my garden that are attractive to bees. It begins in May with the Ceanothus

Then in summer they love foxgloves

and in my front garden a hebe, which provided flowers in February, March this year too, so I wasn’t sure it would flower again when it was meant to! Glad it did as it all helps to keep the bees alive, which are so important for pollinating our crops etc. Do you have any plants the bees love?

Talking of busy bees, I’ve got a large order from the National Trust shop in Widecombe, so must get busy painting!
