Bees in abundance
Two of the cover crops that we have planted fodder radish and phacelia have been alive with bees this weekend. I am a very amateur photographer and the pictures don't really do the scene justice - there were literally hundreds of bees working away across the flowers. Imagine if all farmers just planted a small field corner or gardeners planted a part of their flower bed - it would make a real difference to the bee population.
