I have been a busy working bee 🐝 of late, espresso being my ultimate friend. I recently learnt via someone I follow on Instagram of the male honeybee and their terrible fate. I learnt how after a passionate encounter with the female bee, their male parts explode and they fall to the ground dead! Talk about going out with a bang!!! 🎆
@Emma915Jones yep! The male bees have one use. Every bee that’s left in the hive is female! All the carers, soldiers, worker bees, queen (obviously), basically any honey bee you see will be female. And I love that they each have an individual@part to play but ultimately act as a single organism. It’s incredible!
It appears our border is still going well in parts. Scabious is flowering non-stop. Perhaps with the colder spell likely in the next few weeks they will slowdown. In the meantime I’ll sit and admire them. #pollinatorplants
Autumn has arrived in our garden and this scabious is hanging on to every last flower for as long as it can. Here it is accompanied by grasses, heucheras and sedums #autumn
