Bee Hotels

After some research on ways to attract bees to the garden and vege patch, we decided that one fun idea was to build a bee hotel out in the backyard.

Bee hotels are designed to attract a variety of bee species into the garden by using a selection of wood and hole sizes.

Here is our masterpiece!

    Wow now that is Bee-zar, Bee-devilling, Bee-fuddling and very Bee-coming. Hope your guests enjoy there stay. The only things that visited last time I left a pile of timber in the yard were a colony of termites who certainly did enjoy the stay.

      Yes they are Robyn. Only a few flowers as the shrubs are still establishing themselves. Looking forward to this time next year when they will be more advanced.
