Did you even know there was such a thing as a fuzzy footed flower bee? I did not, and nearly died of cute overload when I found out. Even better, their latin name is Anthophora plumipes!
These bees can be seen from late February or early March, and are one of the earliest bees in the garden.
If you want to help these amazingly cute bees and see them in YOUR garden, plant lungwort and comfrey. Also let deadnettles grow.
They nest in soft mortar joints or the ground. Something to bear in mind if you want some to live in your area.
