Just a quick post of some pictures which I captured earlier in the week.  The bees were out and about and sitting by the window I heard there buzzing,  I went to investigate and managed to get these photographs.   There were so many bees visiting the flowers, and they were very busy indeed.

It's our church fete tomorrow so I am hoping for a dry spell between 2pm and 4pm.   I feel very guilty wanting this as I know that the farmers are desperate for the rain.  But whatever the weather I am hoping for a  fun day.  We have the Long Melford Silver Band visiting and I know they will be wonderful!


  1. Hi Ruth! What stunning photos, I've enjoyed having a little glimpse into your beautiful!
    Thanyou for stopping by my blog and saying hello :)

  2. Hope you had a nice fete - it is grey, cold and windy here - not ideal weather, so hope yours was better!

  3. Yay! It's Sunday morning and the fete is done! Weather was kind, cool and breezy, but no rain.
    Also I think that all that came enjoyed themselves. :)
