There is more about Summer that I dislike than I can ever find to like. But, there are some interesting things around that you will only ever see in the summer. I love dragonflies and can watch them for hours, butterflies and the business of the birds will distract me for a while too. When I begin to think that there is nothing new to see in my garden I suddenly find that there is! In my new garden bed there are lots of blue and various shades of purple flowers and a recent visitor to this bed is a blue banded bee. http://bluebandedbees.com/
I have never seen one in the garden before and after reading about them I think they are a very welcome guest. This is my second sighting and she wasn't very helpful to me when I tried to get a photo, but you get the idea of what she looks like.
