the sound of summer


The garden is alive with the buzzing of bees. They are loving the oregano, nasturtium, lavender and alliums….


… particularly the oregano. I counted 8 bees on each of the plants, on opposite sides of the garden. Not just bumblebees either.




We have also been visited today by 2 butterflies that I have never seen before. I had to look them up!! (identified here)


a Comma butterfly;

004 and a Meadow Brown.

It has been another glorious day today, after the torrential rain since we returned from our holiday. Looking forward to more days like this and more unusual butterfly spotting – fingers crossed.


A random, but fabulous sunset photo from a few weeks ago that I haven’t posted!!

I have recently become aware of adverts appearing at the bottom of my posts. These are nothing to do with me, I don’t know why they are there or indeed how to get rid of them. I apologise.
