Bees Too

These furry bumblebees seem to have taken up residence in the living room shutters. Being of hollow construction I guess they where just the right size for the bees to fit in.

We have the windows open and the bees come and go. They come into the room only occassionally and don’t bother us much. Will have to keep an eye on the size of the colony though, as the summer goes on.

Having not used the car since Saturday I opened the boot yesterday to find a wasp had started to build it’s home inside the hinge at the top of the door. I’m glad I caught it before its family had really taken off.
