    Hello there Morag, from Australia - Great to hear from the McCloy clan in lovely Inverness. Your flowers are certainly putting on a show. I can recall the fantastic hanging baskets of flowers in your city some time ago, and it looks like your pansies are in such a container. It would be lovely to see some photos with wider views of your garden to fully appreciate the results of your hard work. That bumblebee seems to be enjoying itself. We don't have them in the mainland States of Australia (they are in the island State of Tasmania), and biosecurity agencies are keen to prevent them entering the mainland. Cheers from Oz

        Hi treasuresmom - it is claimed that bumblebees would compete for nectar with native nectar feeders; and that they are inefficient pollinators of native flora, but more efficient pollinators of exotic weeds which are currently not widespread i.e. environmental reasons.
