Garden Bumblebee male on everlasting sweet pea. The plant had seeded itself in the crack between 2 paving stones in front of the house but I left it over the summer for the bees. Certain flowers seem to cause the bees to ‘hum’ in a higher pitch & this is one of them – the bee sounded delighted as it moved from lower to flower.
These large bumblebees have a long face & tongue - in fact the longest tongue of all our bumble bees. It can stretch up to 2cm, which is as long as its own body! This means it can reach right inside flowers like Foxgloves, Cowslips & other tubular flowers.
Chrome metal pill boxes with plastic insert (divided into 3) & mirrored lid. Have a tablet to take at mealtimes? These make a discrete & useful way of carrying your medication while out for a meal or a meeting.
Customers tell me they are also handy as travel or trinket pots. Available in a range of British Nature designs & packed in own box.
