Maximum temperature 16C, minimum 3C. 23 kmh NE wind, 34 km/h gusts. Overcast and light rain.
The longhorn beetle is still around despite the cooling weather....
Peonies will be open very soon. Note the small bug on the left!
Bluebells are starting to go over but will be around for a few more days.
For the record - New veggie garden at the back and moving some of the turf to a spot closer that Nigel has dug out as it was full of weed.
The new small garden will be next to the green house, not fenced, so we can plant nothing here that the rabbits might fancy!
