It's lovely to see our gardens and parks attracting wildlife. The bees in our garden seem to be very prolific this year. Pity I don't like honey!

They actually do look like the bottle cleaner I have in my kitchen drawer. Although my bottle brush is a dreary off white!

We have lots of bottle tree bush around the parks and by the roadsides, they thrive on our hot climate.

Fantastic pink color on the bottle bush! I love shots of bees. I think they are fascinating.

I love flowers that attract insects! The bottlebrush looks perfect for bees, I bet they pick up a lot of pollen.

We now have a buddleia. I planted it last year, and it grew so well, it now has half a dozen arching branches with deep purple flowers - and yes, visiting bees!
