beesy peasy - our new bee hotel

We are encouraged to assist our buzzy friends by making 'bee hotels'. These are collections of natures tubes and stuff that will provide nesting sites for solitary bees.

Having cleared the 'tops' of our perennials, I spotted that lots were hollow-stemmed and would make a great contribution to a Cordwood Bee Hotel if cut down to short lengths.

Next, some scrap wood for the structure.

Sawn lengths of rotting wood.

Old bamboo canes.

Straw.

Plant pots.

Then add two eager assistants.

Site finished work of art on a south facing surface.

And beesy, peasy. Our new Bee Hotel.
