Ever since the abelia started flowering, I’ve been on the lookout for the return of the Blue-banded Bees. They didn’t emerge from their burrows (or wherever they hibernate or hatch) until Christmas Eve.

And, like nearly every other year, I spotted a loner in the lavender first.

Thanks for looking.

    A lovely flower, very delicate colouring. How are the bees? We haven’t seen that many yet but not a lot of flowers flowering, I think the weather has affected them.
