Photographs from the Rose Garden at Belvoir Castle.

A wedding reception in early June.

A warm summer's afternoon in a classic rose garden.

Lots of bumble bee activity on the thrift and cranesbill (geranium) flowers.

This striking corn us took my eye.

The sky above Belvoir Castle should have been alive with the chatter of summer swallows and martins. It wasn't ... so once again .... no house marti ns.

I love your photos. I have an English country garden with lots of bee-friendly plants including, scabia (the one your bee in your photo is on), salvia, lavender, tulipa, lavatora, cat nep, also many herbs such as sage, mint, thyme, chives. My absolute favourite are the foxgloves that self-seed and grow every year naturally through my garden. Also I have an organic veggie patch that the bees love with nasturtiums, sweet peas and runner beans. Also the courgette and marrow plants that we need them to pollinate. We have to keep preserve the bees and our gardens are the only way to do it and do something positive. I love choosing plants that will help them collect their nectar.
