The flower is lovely but it is the bee that is the star of the show!

Agree about the Bee
A smashing touch of catch-light on the eye
Definitely compliments the bloom

Best of luck with the bathroom etc; we have the decorator in at the moment at home
Place is in total chaos

Have just PM'd you Carole

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I would frame this if it were mine. Close-up photography doesn't get better than this.
