Making the bits and bobs for our nature area has been pretty fun for all of us and today was the one I’ve been looking forward to. We brought back fab memories from my childhood and cracked out the hand-drill to make a home for bees.
Starting with a chunky log..
.. we worked together to drill holes of different sizes.
Our adventurer had lots of fun decorating the new bee home.
We decided to drill the holes in one section so that we can easily see if it’s being used and so that in the future we can add more bee accommodation.
It looks pretty good next to our bug hotel and mini-pond.
We’re planning on sowing grass and wild flower seeds later in the year so that next year this will be buzzing with bug, bee and amphibian life.
