Managed to take a pic of this cute little wren yesterday, I think it’s just a chick - they’re tiny little birds, very pleased they’re nesting in the garden

Beautiful Astrantia Major pic from yesterday with a very busy bee - they love it, look at those long tongues - they're called a glossa and it's more like a mop than a straw, all the nectar sticks to hairs on it then they pull it in and suck it all up - delicious! 🐝😋

The Aloe Vera I rescued from a border is flowering, pretty yellow petals about to emerge! #hellovera #aloealoe #aloevera #greenhouselife #aloeveraflowerisblooming
Astrantia! Lucky to have lots of this in the garden and all just about to bloom (I think it’s called Masterwort) These flowers are my favourite... I like them because when you look close there are loads of tiny flowers, they say like pincushions, the bees seem to love them too - 🐝 pic with my #d5600

Haven’t been into greenhouse for a couple of days, hoping to water everything at lunchtime today, although with the amount of rain and the number of missing panes I’m sure nothing will be parched!

Fuschia blossom in a hanging basket in the greenhouse, have said before but flowers in greenhouse are really making me smile 😃 x took this in my lunch hour today love the colours 😍 bees seem to like them but seems like they should be pollinated by humming birds, haven’t got any of these in the greenhouse in North Wales! 😂

Via Bella Fuschia:
Variety of fuchsia flowers
There are more than 100 varieties of fuchsia plants and each fuchsia flower has a slightly different form. Amazingly, each fuchsia variety is pollinated by a very specific hummingbird. Why is that? During thousands of years, fuchsia plants and hummingbirds have built an evolutionary love affair. Both the shape of the blossom and the length of the bird’s beak have co-evolved; they are a perfect match!
