I noticed quite a few bees buzzing around Fatsia japonica today, while I was tidying around and giving the plants in the glasshouse a light watering. Lovely to see the bees active throughout the winter months.

It was mild today, but overcast, so not surprising the bees were around. The Fatasia is gorgeous, really doing well for you. Chilly forcast from Thursday into the weekend.

Lovely to see the bees; I hope they have somewhere warm to cosy up in for the next few days.

They will be in their winter cluster by the week end . Time for the long snooze.

We had a Queen Wasp looking for a comfy home IN THE LOUNGE the other day!!!! Lets just say her nesting days are over! Bees are quite a different matter! They are welcome at any time! I can't wait for my Fatsias to get those lovely flowers on them!!!! They are still in pots so I'm keeping them in the greenhouse just in case .....
