27/06/2017 In the garden again.

Maximum temperature 24C  minimum 15C.  14 km/h NW winds. Some rain this afternoon not yet measured.
Mrs Sparrow having a drink.  House sparrow (Passer domesticus) ...

and something to say it seems!

What I believe to be a Chapman's Blue (Polyommatus thersites).

and  this one a Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) ...

as above just opening her wings...

and the brown confirms she is female. The male has blue wings.

A Meadow brown in hiding, the only shot I could get! (Maniola jurtina) and I think a female from what I can see.

Small White (Pieris rapae)

Rose bud.

Kalanchoe, 

I hope we will be picking peppers in the near future.

Shield bug.
