Some months ago, we discovered that a swarm of bees had taken up residence in one of our possum boxes in my garden. It has been fascinating to observe the activity of these busy and important creatures in our back yard.
Through these hot days however, the bees seem like they are regulating the hive's temperature by moving outside the box and have at times hung from the roof of the box and around the entrance.
I have loved these inhabitants in our garden and LOVE the beautiful honey smell that fills the air in that part of the garden.
......now to find out a way that they could share some of their precious honey with me...but then again I want them to feel safe and stay in our garden ....so will just admire them from afar!

It was so HOT today as we teachers headed back to school to prepare for our students who begin on Friday. The garden, while in need of a bit of TLC was looking surprisingly great with some serious growing having taken place through the holidays.
Our Sensory Garden is so overgrown that it will be tricky walking around the lavender spiral. I am resisting trimming it now before the kids come back as I really want the kids to harvest the lavender flowers and for us to use them in different ways.
Our Garden Angels, who watered the garden through the holidays have done a great job and we thank these wonderful families very much for their hard work! Thankyou!!!
