Gibraltar’s Bee Hotel.

Recently on my trip to #Gibraltar I came across this delightful children’s garden complete with a Bee Hotel in Alameda Botanical Gardens. It’s inspired me to do something similar here in UK with the children and parents I work with.

Since coming back from Gibraltar readers will know I’ve opened a new website to record my memoirs of the Rock which can be seen at (There is a link here on my primary website). I hve many hundreds of photos and select a few daily to compliment my blog there which spans the period 1974-2016. 

My wild flower garden

It’s been a gorgeously warm day today and since I had finished my studies I decided to spend it in the garden with Mowgli. A few days ago I began creating this wild flower garden for the little creatures, you know the butterflies and bees, and today I threw a pile of poppy seeds all over it. I thought they could keep the daisies and dandilions company. The rest of my day was spent in a deck chair watching and waiting to see my first poppy. It hasn’t arrived yet but as a past time I would highly recommend it 🙂
