Today I saw a white -tailed bumble bee in my garden.
It was gathering nectar from the winter flowering clematis. This was Wisley Winter Cream but I do have 3 others in flower also, 2 ‘Landsdown Gems’ and one Freckles. Far too early for a bumble – but obviously woken up by the sun. Glad I have some nectar for it. There are heathers and primroses too in flower. This is the list of clematis in flower now with pictures of their flowers.
