Bees on ivy

Yesterday I saw hundreds of our bees on the ivy flowers. They love the ivy nectar at this time of year when little else is around. Before we kept honey bees I didn’t even know that ivy had flowers! Now I always advise people to keep an ivy-clad  wall somewhere in the garden, or not to cut back any ivy before it’s flowered in late summer.
