Yesterday, whilst working on the computer, I heard a loud buzzing. We often get big French wasps dropping out of our attic after OH has been up but this was louder than that. I looked out of the window to see a huge swarm of bees in the front garden.
They stayed around for about 5 minutes before moving next door. I shot outside to take a picture (not easy with my little camera) until they became interested in me so left them to it. They hung around for another few minutes then drifted down the street. The photograph doesn't cover even a quarter of the bees in the swarm!
First thing this morning, the water board turned up to install our meter.
We had just got back from our walk and were having a cup of tea at B's, when the heavens opened – how fortuitous was that?
