Echinops and bees

By oldgreyheron      
Another image from our visit to the lovely Helmsley Walled Garden in North Yorkshire.

The striking globular heads of the flowering globe thistles were extremely attractive to the bee population!

As ever thanks for your time and thoughts - do go large if you have the time - Mike
