Hello, and thank you for all your kind comments on my last post :)
Having been stuck indoors for ages, I was going to tackle the jungle of weeds in the veg plot today but got side tracked by the wildlife in the garden and went back in for my camera instead! Everything is so wet it's no fun weeding and getting covered in mud :(
Butterfly numbers are down this year, but I noticed this Ringlet one on the daisies. Apparently they are happy with damp shady places, which explains a lot!
Lots of bumble bees
I think this is a solitary bee. I've seen a few holes in the ground where they've made nests.
And a grasshopper. Really odd looking creatures close up!
Not forgetting these pests! Lottie used to catch them now and again, but they seem to out smart her and stay just far enough away to be safe now!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend
