Fabulous!

Like a lot of us here, I get emails from 'Grow wild', and this time they did a piece on bees.

It struck me right there, such that I left the lawn alone (covered in clover), and also stopped strimming weeds with flowers.

I suppose we can always get a bit anxious when faced with glaring negatives about failing bee populations, but somehow this one really worked for me!

I'm thinking of asking Kent CC if they'll plant cotoneaster along the motorways, as our several shrubs just teem with our honey-mates! (Expect an answer in December - next year:0(

When OH was driving the car, I used to open the passenger side window, and having made little mud balls, which were filled with meadow seeds, threw them out onto the grass verges as we went by.
I do notice that some of the places I do see the odd poppy and cornflower, daisy etc.  I would like to think that was our effort.   Mrs Bouquet

Cotoneaster is great for berry eating birds in the depths of winter too!
In hard weather our cock Blackbird would defend it from all comers !

Absolutely, 8!

We've got several growing out of the wall, and it's very common to see a blackbird noshing away...

Perhaps not such a good idea being non native ?

ANTS all colours, flying, running, and generally causing havoc.   Do they eat through cement ?  Mrs Bouquet
