Fabulous! Has to be acceptable...there would hardly be any plants in the garden without the bees! What is the stick with buds on, at such a funny angle to the snowdrop?

Thanks people...cordelia, the funny stick with buds is a flowering peach (dwarf form).... the odd thing is that when it flowers it has pink AND white blossoms on the one stem. Assuming it does that again this year...
