Bees and Butterflies busy, busy, busy

Bees and Butterflies busy, busy, busy

Well no time for gardening today busy teaching this morning and after lunch setting off to Naas Racecourse for a Riding club competition.

Drinking coffee outside in the sun I noticed that everywhere there were bees butterflies and I think hover flies busy busy busy hopping from one plant to the next. Out came the camera and up go some more photos in Aug 09 and wildlife. Hope the weathers like this tomorrow otherwise it will be a mud bath and pure miserable, keeping my fingers crossed that the weather stays dry at least.

thanks for the compliments Preiwimkle ,looked at your photos garden looks fab so established. This Sedum is only planted earlier this year and is a magnet for the bees and butterflies.

Is sedum easy to keep? I like it but don't have it.

I find it relatively easy to grow and have transplanted it sucessfully from one garden to another.
