      well i was a bit worried myself,yet they seem so docile,which may be because the weather is a bit cool so they are a bit sluggish.update as of today it has been raining here for the last 12 hours but they still are here.the outer ones just seem to move about swopping places so they are not permanently wet.

      well they are mine in that they have arrived in my garden.But being wild creatures i dont claim ownership of them and no doubt they will leave when they please.Hope they stay for a little while tho. they have been here for 4 days now and dont seem in any hurry to leave but who knows.i will enjoy them while they stay.:-) ;hug

      Yummy indeed and just great with lemon in a hot drink.And yes bees will be happy now.Not that they didnt appear to be ,but they may have gotten just a bit too active for my garden come summer heat if they stayed.

      yes quite a few indeed.and rare nowadays due to varroa mite arrived in the country a few years back sadly which has spread and now almost killed of the wild bee population entirely.and infected most domestic hives also.

      Yes not good for the poor bees.Domestic hives can be treated with certain chemicals but the wild bees have no defence.
