This was taken on Christmas Day, 2009. What a difference this Christmas is going to be, a very soggy one. I wish you all a very Happy Christmas:-)

I have posted some information about bees in winter from the Bee Conservation Society. It is the Buff-tailed Bumblebee that continues to be active during the winter months, even when it is close to freezing temperatures or snow.

This is the Buff-tailed bumblebee in my garden today. This bumblebee is still out and about through the winter, particularly if it is mild. This plant, the Mahonia is a great source of food for it during the winter months.
