04/05/2021 Lockdown remains much the same.......
The maximum temperature here today 15⁰C, minimum 5⁰C. Dry though 90% rain is forecast!! Maybe tonight. (Yes, it has started 20h09). 22km/h South Westerly winds with gusts up to 56 km/h. Rain forecast for most of this week and the temperatures rise again a little. The garden I hope will be happy!
Buttercups (Ranunculus bulbosus).
Camillia (Camellia Japonica).
Spanish Iris (Iris xiphium).
Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera Buckleyi) with its dates a bit mixed up!
Thirsty Western Honey Bee (Apis mellifera).
Fire bug. (Pyrrhocoris apterus) better known as the Gendarme beetle. I always think they look like African masks!
Eristalis similis (Glass-winged Dronefly) a member of the Hoverfly family...
I was fascinated watching it as it appeared to be stretching and cleaning each part of its body. A video would have been good but I could not send it anywhere as it would have taken a week to download it on this WiFi speed...
The caterpillar of the Jersey Tiger Moth (Euplagia quadripunctaria).
I wonder now what the time is 🕤😊
My local list of wildflowers. (90 Species 23/08/2020).
