Today’s selfie is un-BEE-lievably special! We have a real busy bee!  

Our current Summer here in New Zealand has been a bit unsteady but threw us a good day this Saturday, and while mum and dad sat out on the deck with a cup of coffee, they spotted a magnificent bee on our heuchera plant! On the heuchera the leaves are love down and the flower stems thin with very small flowers scattered at the top.  All of us thought the flowers were far top small for a busy bee to collect from, but how wrong we were!

The bee was having a great time collecting tiny bits of pollen, so mum grabbed her iPhone hoping to grab a halfway decent shot of the lovely creature before it flew away. This was ‘touch and go’ as getting close to a bee isn’t always a clever idea, and they are small so might not even come even come out in a smartphone picture!

    I love bees! We planted a crop of lavender plants outside my writing studio for the bees to feast on. I love hearing their hums as I work. Thankfully, they’re not terribly interested in stinging me. I think they’re too busy eating!
