This afternoon whilst watering the hanging baskets Emma and the children came across a bee on the ground that looked very tired. After saving a bee yesterday Emma knew just what to do. Water and sugar mixed together gave the bee a lovely drink so regain some energy until he felt able enough to fly off and find his friends. This was lovely for the children to see and be involved in. #savethebees 🐝
