Looking at my sink garden on a sunny day I saw the Bee weighed down with pollen amongst the early crocus flowers

Great to see, Mavis, what with the declining population of bees in the UK Sad. We don't have that problem here, the meadows are swarming with them Smile Carol

Thank you Joline . It was an old white sink . Matt covered it in chicken wire bending it over to the inside. Then he mixed Cement, Gritty sand & peat in equal quantities & mixed it with some bonding agent and then pushed it on to the sink in handfulls. Been there for 13 years now SmileSmile

A super capture, Mavis, with the bonus of the bee covered in all that pollen! Smile I rather like your plant pot in V2 - it looks a very convincing piece of 'stonework', and would never have guessed otherwise had you not confessed above! Wink

Thankyou all. It helps me to keep sending photos for your perusal when I get such positive response. I " confessed" about the sink as Trev put itWinkWinkso that if any of you were lucky enough to own a white sink you could transform it into a very Convincing looking stone sink xxx
