June Blossoms

Once the blackthorn and hawthorn blossoms die off, the hedgerows become festooned with fresh white and pink bloomsPhoto of dog rose in hedgerow

As well as making our hedgerows look pretty, they and the bramble flowers seemed pretty popular with the bumblebees too. They seemed to mostly be tree bees, Bombus hypnorum and I think early bumblebees, Bombus pratorum.
