What type of plant were you gardening around? This may help track down what kind of insect this was.

Im sorry no i HAVE no idea what it was called,there are so many types of flying things about!but I was working in the greenhouse the other day,and there were two bees who were quite happy buzzing about my head!when they bumped into me I blew them out of the way lol,but I was happy to see them in the greenhouse,they obviously liked the heat!
