Yesterday, I was pleased to get a few more plants potted on. It looks like temperatures are warming up and it won’t be long before tender crops can be going in the garden.
Of course, in this activity there is also now the pleasure of being in the shed, which I’ve had for almost three months. As I open the door, I get the smell of still fresh wood and the sight of useful gardening equipment which used to grace the living room floor. And on this occasion, there was the addition of a bee and several ladybirds.
I was puzzled as to how the bee and ladybirds could have got into the shed – there are no windows and the door wasn’t open at all on Saturday. Then I noticed a small hole in the shed wall and wondered if that might be used as an entrance. I doubt very much the honey bee would have squeezed through to bed down for the night, though.
Mystery not totally solved but at least they didn’t get tangled up in the spider’s web. I’m seeing more and more ladybirds round my property these days, which may just mean I am being more observant. Or maybe there is more to attract them in. Either way, I hope there won’t be too many aphids this year.
