Fantastic foraging on Rue/Common Rue (Ruta graveolens).


 The garden is thrumming with life at the moment. This morning though, the Rue/Common Rue (Ruta graveolens) was an especially wonderful sight with honeybees, wasps, at least 4 kinds of hoverflies, bumble bees and small tortoiseshell butterflies all foraging on one plant simultaneously!
