Busy as a Bee

With the dramatic decline in the number of honey bees in the UK, the Bumblebees seem to have taken on a significant element of the pollination job in our garden.   The Azalea is now in full flower and there often seems to be the low drone of buzzing from its direction.

In between the showers, I just hope they find the apple, plum and cherry blossom in time to set some fruit!
