There are bees and bumble bees all over our climbing plant

We planted a Pileostgia viburnoideswhite climbing hydrangea – on a wall in our garden many years ago. Every year it needs pruning, as we’ve only a small garden, otherwise I’d let it continue growing.

At the end of August it’s covered in a mass of tiny white flowers. The bees and bumble bees go absolutely bonkers for it. We guessed, probably a hundred or so of them all over the plant. Difficult to pick them out in this photo. Happy that there are so many bees and that there’ll be making honey, which we like.
