The astrantia at RHS Wisley Gardens are a late-summer haven for bees, hoverflies and other insects. We’ve just had the hottest August Bank Holiday on record (so the forecasters believe!) and these wonderful flowers were alive with bees. A real joy to see. I’m posting this for this week’s Wex Mondays challenge. Good luck everyone!

The gardens are all just heavenly for bees at the moment! In a few days time Simon and I will be on Kos, one of the beautiful Greek Islands. I’m really looking forward to a bit of Kos Thyme Honey on fresh bread for my breakfasts 🙂 Thyme flourishes all over the island which is also dotted with clusters of Greek-blue beehives! Driving along the roads of Kos with the windows down is a wonderfully fragranced journey 🙂
