Bumblebee house

Bumblebee house
Originally uploaded by FransBadger.

My birthday present this year: a bumblebee house. With its small colony of “kontukimalainen” (wonder what that species is in English?) these busy new neighbours of us will hopefully take care of visiting all the flowers in those fruit trees and berry bushes. Search for “pörrinpesä” if you are interested in getting your own.

  2. Thanks a lot! — No bumblebee activities observed this evening, but then again, it is cool and the rain was approaching when I finally got home today. Hope all is ok with them though.
