27/05/2017 A walk down the road and around the garden. I took a lot of photos so they will spread into tomorrow as well!

Maximum temperature 28C, minimum 13C.  11 km/h SE wind with 16 km/h gusts.   Dry.
Walking down the road I see the farmers have been busy...

Wild stitchwort...

the ferns are looking healthy...

A hoverfly (I think) in the cow parsley...

Dog rose...

Daisy...

Buttercup...

and Californian poppies, plus a couple of small bugs.

Back home a bee on the cotoneaster

A Black-veined White butterfly in the sage... 

A Carpenter Bee in the sage...

as above...

A green Lizard in hiding under the sage looking for grub...

watch out Hummingbird Hawkmouth you may end up as lunch!!!

  2. Diane, you are so blessed to have these beautiful lizards around! And your photos are gorgeous once again...I especially love the poppies, (but this is because it is one of my favourite flowers). Glorious captures!

    1. Thanks Linda, I also love poppies but they seem to grow better in the wild than in my garden. The Californian poppies are OK in the garden though. Have a good week Diane

  5. The bales reminds me of our baling the fields in February. I love your bees, moth and butterfly and all the beautiful blooms.

  7. I absolutely loved my walk through your garden Diane. Your photos are all so very enjoyable. I loved the flowers, their little visitors, the lizard peaking through the undergrowth, that beautiful scene with the hay bales, everything and all. Thank you!
