We found this bee several days ago on the primula. I have to say it was looking a bit weary and bedraggled. As it is just outside the conservatory window, we kept an eye on it to see how it fared. The following day it had fallen out and was lying in the earth. That was it, we thought. It was old and sick; its time had come!
This morning the sun was shining and birds were singing and Bertie the Bee had somehow mustered up all his strength to climb back on the flower. He can teach us a great deal about life, I reckon!
