    Beautiful! I also have a blue rosemary as well as a pink one, the blue being much the stronger and thicker leaved of the two, both in glorious bloom now and have been for a while. Every day, every sunny day at least, both are humming with bee activity.

    Your garden must get more sun than mine at this time of the year or may be a little warmer generally, because while I have a lot of plants in growth or just now coming back to life, not many are in either bud or bloom yet. But then, my garden is still subject to occasional frosts in September.

      Thanks, Bernie. I have the pink rosemary too, and a light blue one, which self-seeds in the gravel paths. We don’t get frosts here, I suppose the trees moderate the temperature a fair bit. I’ve been pleased to see a lot more bees this year, especially on the plums, so hoping for plenty of fruit. The apples and pears are yet to flower.

    Wow! Now wonder the bees have gone stir-crazy at your place. Look at all those blooms!! It’s great to see so much life in your garden. Thanks for taking us along. 🙂

      There have been so many more bees than last year. Maybe someone nearby has a hive. I have a large number of self-sown and deliberately sown poppies this year and self sown parsnips. The bees love them both and I get to collect lots of poppyseed for my bread. The parsnips are never any good because the soil is too compacted for good long roots to develop and I don’t have an area where I can develop the depth needed (wicking boxes are too shallow), but I collect lots of seed and give it to my neighbour who has the right soil and depth and he brings me beautiful parsnips. Win win.
