The Bee Cycle… 

I love this time of year, you can literally feel a change in the air and we see mother nature’s magic at work, it truly is wonderful. 

What is not so wonderful though, is seeing the dieing Bees.  Someone commented on this to me and said there wasn’t enough food for them. 

Well,  this in places is partly true and is one of the reasons why we are planning and trying to establish the Tulloch Meadow. 

But another reason why you may be coming across a lot of lethargic or dead Bees at the moment, is because of their life cycle. And instead of me explaining, am enclosing this link from the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust…  https://bumblebeeconservation.org/news/anthonys-blog/what-happens-to-bumblebees-in-autumn

Keep a look out on the remaining flowers and plants for this behaviour from our precious and beloved Bees and see nature at work. 

The images, I have just taken in this last hour with my phone and shows the Bumble Bees on the Autumn Crocus here at Tulloch.

Lurking Wee Creatures …

It is that time of year, when folk are clearing & tidying up their gardens.

And I don’t want to state the obvious, but please be careful when clearing brash, branches etc, as these can be cherished homes for some wildlife.

Please leave some piles around for Wee creatures. They may look an eyesore to you, but, they’ll be five star accommodation for some.

Some wildlife are looking for places to start hibernating in this next month.

We have some small branches on the lawn, which I thought should be moved, but look who I found lurking underneath.

I have left said branches and will leave him be and am thrilled to share Tulloch garden with him 🐸
