When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

All #astrantia are great for bees and #pollinators which is just another reason to love them 🐝 🌸🐝 #astrantia-roma

That is such a shame. Worth trying in a sheltered position? They are so lovely. I have several in flower at the moment so likely to post more over the next few days... @jmlincoln

🤣 they don't pose for long 🐝. Fantastic news on the flycatchers, sad day for you but how successful have they been, brill , 2 clutches and how many fledges in total?

12, I think. I’m convinced there are fewer midges about - the rest of the household remain to be convinced 😉😂 @solly1961
