bee looked like a new super-yellow species, but the reality of the colour and the source were all too evident.
A hoverfly and a small black thing were also in on the act - should look better on the web album.
Up the road the farmer had managed to mash most of the winter heliotrope patch with his tractor tyres, but some had survived, again complete with flying insect.
It was so nice to be out in the sun again, and the light even allows a decent days gardening. Which is good for the soul, but it turns out isn't so good for the back!
As always bigger and better quality pictures HERE in the latest pictures album.
