One plant, many visitors

Do you have a plant in your garden that is particularly attractive to visitors? In our case, this year, it was the mint.

Our mint ran riot during lockdown, and I kept meaning to do something about it. I’m glad I never got around to that though, because once it flowered, the visitors it attracted for weeks on end gave us enormous pleasure.

Here are some of them. How many do you recognise? And how many have visited your garden (or local park)?
