Honeybees on Chilean Myrtle, Eucryphia, Aster and sedum.

 Luma apiculata (Chilean myrtle)

Delighted to see the bees on the Chilean myrtle this week.
There is a lovely delicate fragrance from the flowers.

 The Asters, that I divided this spring, are in full prollific bloom and covered in honeybees, hoverflies, bumblebees and butterflies.

The Sedum Spectabile is such a reliable bee magnet.

 The Eucryphia × nymansensis has flowered on and on and on .... and is finally down to the last few blooms.

 The mints, oregano, borage, echium and phacelia all continue to provide forage too.
