Bees and the sweetest thing

I eat raw honey every morning in my porridge- yes, porridge is a very healthy and filling breakfast which keeps me going for ages. I recommend organic Scottish oats, which have a sweet flavour, cooked with water instead of milk. Today I was lucky to see some bees and I have noticed that they are very visible on days when the sun is out. Here are some shots I took this morning on my patio. The pretty blue flowers are of the borage plant, favoured by lovers of Pimms. I eat the leaves and flowers in salads- the flavour resembles cucumber. Borage grows wild and this plant just turned up unannounced in my garden.
