Fuzzy buzzy bee
Saw my first bumblebee of the year yesterday, a lovely buff tailed fuzzy hovering around the bamboo while I was bringing in the washing and my daughter was climbing on her playhouse. A beautiful few days here in Scotland, although snow is forecast at the weekend! Have cut back the rosemary and got plastic down on the raised bed warming the soil, just got to do the blueberries and if we avoid the snow the carrots, beetroot and spinach will go in the soil this weekend. Spent yesterday planting peas and nasturtiums with the P2s at school which went well although it never fails to amaze me how many are still genuinely horrified at the sight of a worm. This from the same children who see no worry in flushing their class mates shoes down the toilet... Enjoying the sun while it lasts!
