New tenants

The large bug house which has recently been moved to overlook the newly created orchard has got new tenants. At last we have some bees which have moved into some of the smaller bamboo tubes. We have waited a long time for this so hopefully now word will spread and more bees will move in. This evening there were 6 bees in residence.

The bamboo tubes

You can just see the head of the bee in the bamboo tube (click photograph to enlarge)

Perhaps the bees prefer the box now because it is now in a more sheltered position. Hopefully they will stay and take full advantage of their new home.

A close inspection of our newly planted apple trees revealed this.....

Our first apples from the new trees planted in the Spring
