Wildlife Trusts LUSH Garden: Thistle and Bumblebees
These glorious thistles, Cirsium rivulare atropurpurea, were very popular with both visitors and bumblebees alike. Here we have a couple of light-tailed bumblebees (Bombus sp.). For a detailed account of Chelsea 2005 show see the feature article RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2005.
