|The papyrus has now reached the roof of the greenhouse and looks great with the large umbrella flowering heads. The plants need a lot of water each day to keep them in good condition.|
|One of the larger gourds. There are lots now growing on the six plants that we have growing.|

On leaving the greenhouse I became aware of a deafening buzzing in the sky above. The space over the school garden was covered with buzzing bees. There were thousands of them. I decided to take shelter in the door way of the building and see what happened.
|The spots which look like rain against the trees behind the classrooom are actually thousands of bees. (click to enlarge the picture to see all the bees)|
|You can see the black mass of bees as they settled into the willow|
|Close up -well as close as I dare go - of the mass of bees. The noise was deafening (click on the picture to see the mass of bees)|
The bees were still there at 8pm this evening. Hopefully they will move on tomorrow. Watch this space!
