I have a lot of bees that enjoy the flowers in my garden. I’m actually allergic to bumble bees and hornet stings so I guess I’m lucky that for the most part I’ve got more friendly bumble bees around than any of the other stinging bees.
This lovely bumble bee is collecting pollen from a Malva sylvestra flower. This flower is very easy to grow as it’s a hybrid of the native mallow that grows throughout North America.
