busy bee

a very busy bee, I couldn't get him in focus!
the beautiful squares of the fritilary,
just fascinating, it took years for them to grow in the garden, there are about a dozen now. unfortunately when they are just growing they look like blades of grass so I think the first couple of years I weeded them there are advantages to not getting around to weeding!
this pulmonaria was a cutting from a friend
and the pretty littly dodecatheon, with some more flowers to come

Nice. Looks so green & lush!

Also nice to have good reasons to procrastinate on weeding! ;-)

I love your photos but let's give credit where credit is due. That busy out-of-focus bee is a girl working her wings off not some lazy drone(boy)eating beebread back at the hive.
