    Bees love to listen to music. Their favourite band is Sting.

    It's quite fasinating watching them buzz about to be honest.

    All my hives were bringing in masses of pollen yesterday, there may be a good source somewhere nearby.

    My wife spotted a leafcutter bee in the backyard a while ago.
    It came and cut big circles out of her rose bush leaves and took em away to make its nest.
    We were both chuffed to bits to see it as I never even knew they existed til then.

    I wonder if that's what's been at my roses as well. We don't have many of them because they've only cut holes in five or six leaves that I noticed. They do cut perfect circles and unlike leaf cutter ants they cut a perfect hole in the middle of the leaf where as the ants start at the edge and make radial cuts but not holes.
