24/04/2017 Went shopping and forgot the camera! More bugs in the garden.

Maximum temperature 21C, minimum 1C.  7 kmh N wind.  More work done in the garden but also Nigel fitted in a cycle ride. Dry.
Small copper.

As above.

I think this is a robber fly.

Bee.

Chafer Beetle - ceprea family...

eating all our flowers!!

There were two longhorn beetles there today.

Dog rose.

Peony bud and ant.

Ladybird.

Wasp.

Would love to be up there flying back to Africa.

  1. I'd say you have a healthy garden to invite in all those insects. I'd fly with you.

  3. The first part of this post could illustrate the pages of a textbook on pollinators. It's good to see so many attracted to your garden.

    1. When the lavender comes out then they really arrive. I think I cut it back a bit too much this year though it is taking its time. Cheers Diane
