I was amazed at how much rubbish she evacuated in just a few short minutes. Whilst I was looking at the insect house I could see one of the plugs in the top row that had been placed there by the earlier visiting bees, being moved or pushed very slightly from the inside. I kept going back to the insect house in the hope of seeing something come out from the sealed bamboo but as it was getting dark and activity around the would be 'hive' ceased the 'plug' had stopped moving. Hopefully, if I am lucky, I may see what emerges from this sealed hole tomorrow.
Today is the first day of the seventh month - we are more than half-way through the year. The most notable day of the month is July 15th or St Swithin's day ... if it rains on St Swithin's day it is said that it will rain for a full forty days and forty nights. We had so much rain last year that let us hope that it doesn't rain on this St Swithin's day.
