Food for the soul

I used to grow flowers for cutting and drying, now I grow them for the bees and butterflies. Phacelia, poppies, campion and more are all flowering now. The bees are loving them and so am I. Some I've sown this year but more than a few are self-sown from last year. And some are happy accidents - like the winter tares I sowed for green manure then left to flower.

It's good to see the RHS doing their bit with its Perfect for Pollinators scheme and that Sarah Raven is catching up with my ideas.

I'm nothing if not modest.
