Flowers look pretty, of course. A garden filled with splashes of colour attracts us, and it’s lovely to sit among such beauty!
But flowers also, so importantly, attract others – pollinators like bees and butterflies, many of which have been in decline, but are so important to our eco-system.
Quite often, one of the smaller turrets on the North-West side of the Church are inhabited by honey bees which, on occasions, has caused some excitement when they’ve left the nest and swarmed, relying on the help of local bee keepers to retrieve them!
We’re currently trying to record the different species found in our grounds. Let us know what you find!
