Bumble bees and flowers

There's supposed to be a crisis in bumble bee numbers but we have two nests (hives?) of them this year. Both are in the wall of railway sleepers (ties for you in the US)
This is just a selection of early summer flowers.

I love these petunias with the veins.
And my cistus brings joy every morning, every night the petals fall off to be replaced the next day
One of my 'ordinary' double peonies, lovely in their own right but after the tree peonies, a little tame...

Only this one has a sport of a single, I think I might prefer it.

And one of the bumble bees homing in to the nest.
