One day in August – the secret life of bees

So the idea of this week's Gallery was to take a picture on Sunday August 29 because that was the day that three mum bloggers – Eva, Sian and Josie – flew to Bangladesh with Save the Children.

What they're doing is just awesome, and to mark the occasion I wanted to take a picture of something simple and beautiful but astonishing as well. So, it took me AGES to get this shot of a bee on some of our lavender – I hope you can see its wings clearly. 

And meanwhile, here's to the mummy bloggers currently in Bangladesh. Ladies, you're amazing.
