Ladybirds and bees busy on the blackcurrant bushes

This morning I spotted quite a few ladybirds on our two blackcurrant bushes.

I hope they are feeding off any aphids and pests. I can see why they love the blackcurrant bushes as the flowers are wonderfully delicate.

As well as the ladybirds, there were quite a few beed feeding off the flowers, although they would not keep still enough for me to get a photo so I just snapped the ladybirds.

I did catch this bee feeding on the heather flowers.

And just had to snap the bluebells all coming into flower.

There’s so much going on in the garden at this time of year.
