Glad you like the photos. A couple of thoughts:
COOL pictures. Because we didn't consciously make nests for them, they've decided that the little manufactured holes in the shelving units of the wood house, and the ones under our outdoor table and benches are just perfect for them and are thanking us by laying eggs in all of them. Tad of a nuisance under the table and benches though as most folk run a mile when they see a bee. Shame on them. I can see I'll have lots of gentle explaining to do this summer! Then in the winter we'll block up those holes and make some purpose built condos for them
