All the Hawthorn blossom has gone and the Rhododendron flowers are fading, but the bees are now loving the Marsh Thistles Cirsium palustre. They're also loving Creeping Buttercups Ranunculus repens and the big Ox-eye Daisy Leucanthemum vulgare.
Pictured here are the thistles - my net finally arrived so i spent the other day catching bees and crawling about in thistles, which isn't that comfy. But it was gloriously hot and sunny so i managed to put up with it.
