Feeding Madrid’s insects

  1. I have a lavender patch in my garden which attracts a lot of bumblebees. I love listening to their gentle hum in the early afternoon but I never get too close. At least not close enough to take a photo of them!


    • I see one or two Xylocopo bees nearly every evening, when the temperatures start decreasing..I think it might be worth planting some more flowering plants that attract insects: if you can’t live in nature then bring nature to you!
