Bee populations have been collapsing in recent years, and this has been evident in our home garden as well. This year bee numbers have rebounded a little, which I hope is encouraging. The native bumble bees seem to really like this type of sea holly; I’ve seen as many bees on a small clump of spikey flowers at one time as I’ve seen in the entire garden in past years. I enjoy watching them, almost like some form of ballet mixed with pragmatic productivity and the occasional skirmish. On a warm summer day with flowers in bloom I can spend hours watching the different species work through their more or less favourite blooms. They’re more industrious than I am.
