FOUND A BEES NEST

I was working in the garden the other day and I saw a small heap of cut leafs so I wanted to flatten it and all of a sudden the heap began to buzz !! Then I saw the bee’s. That was 2 days ago, by now they are rebuilding the heap but it is not yet as high as it was. I looked them up in a book about bees and they are farmworm bees (colletus daviesanus).

THE ENTRANCE OF THE NEST IS UNDER THE YELLOW TWIG, ALAS THEY WERE TOO FAST FOR MY CAMERA TO GET A PHOTO OF THEM

Have a great day !

LOOK WHAT I FOUND TODAY

This morning when I was doing my round in the garden I saw a little white spider on one of my fuchsia plants, I think it is a crab spider.

CAN YOU SEE THE SMALL CLUMP OF BLACK ON ONE OF THE SMALL LEAFS ? COULD THESE BE HER EGGS ???? NORMALLY SHE IS WHITE BUT SHE CAN CHANGE INTO BRIGHT YELLOW ON A YELLOW FLOWER ! SHE NEEDS 10 TO 24 DAYS TO TURN YELLOW AND ONLY 6 DAYS TO TURN WHITE AGAIN.
