12/05/2017 A quick walk around the garden as I have been in the kitchen most of the day.

Maximum temperature 19C, minimum 9C.  12 km/h SW wind.   4 mm rain measured this morning. 
The cherries are ripening, if all is well I will be very busy in the kitchen in a weeks time.

Dog Rose.

Young apples.

Daisies and fly.

Broad Beans.

Capricorn beetle (longhorn) munching on the dog rose (Cerambyx cerdo)

Common Lizard giving me the eye.



  1. Diane, it never seizes to amaze me how you are able to name all the insects in your photo. I don't recall ever having seen a Capricorn beetle. Interesting. Another lovely series! And your lizard and last photos should be framed! :)

    1. That was a well posed lizard LOL. I do not know a lot of insect names but I have learnt most of the local ones but certainly nothing like all of them. Have a good day Diane

  2. Hope,you were cooking something good,

    1. I hope so as well LOL. Friends to dinner tonight Saturday and I picked a main course and a pudding that both needed most of the work done the day before. I hoe tonight I will discover that it was all worthwhile! Diane

  3. Wish I was there to help you with (read eat) those cherries.

  4. I wish you could be here as well...... hugs Diane
