Flowers, Berries and Bees

Out with Bella this morning, saw that the posters for the Steam Fair have not survived the recent rain very well.
Our neighbours still have their scaffolding up, even though the work has finished.
This helicopter spent quite a while hovering over this part of Bath - couldn't make out who it was for: police or gas?
We finished off the fence this morning, so feel quite pleased with ourselves. The garden is generally looking quite sorted out at last! This afternoon, this butterfly was trapped against the windowpane until I encouraged it out.
Out with Bella this afternoon, it was again bee time. This buddleia continues to be popular.
All shapes and sizes of bee in evidence.
The first blackberries are starting to ripen.
A collection of antique collectibles from a garden shed clear out?
The bees really liked these - I saw three on one flower.
This day a year ago, I opened the blinds to see this snail suspended halfway up the window
