how exciting - great pics. We have a new nesting box for the birds as the bees took it over a couple of years ago, and the blue tits are already in there :)

I'm building a couple of nesting boxes for birds, just have to find a place in the garden where they can be left in peace. Difficult when you have two kids with mouths the size of London! :-?

I'm well chuffed, nice to see the complete process.

The bees have finally come to stay with us Calv - they seem to have settled down ok, fingers crossed.

We have put them behind the Summer House, & I've cleared that patch specially for them, cutting down the overhang & clearing around to give them more light :-) Pampered bees eh? LOL
