The love-in-a-mist had started flowering by yesterday which Beginninghere will be pleased to see.
The Pretty Lady roses are on the way whilst one Valentine Heart is already blooming
On Thursday morning I was doing some weeding and kept noticing brown butterflies fluttering past me, although none settled on the plot. I got the camera and went walkabout finding this one sunning itself on a nearby path Once home I identified it as a Painted Lady which according to this have been seen in very large numbers over much of the country during the past week. Whilst taking photos of the roses I turned round to see this one on the nearby perennial cornflower It’s amazing as I’ve seen more butterflies in the past couple of days than I have in the past few years!
My Swift early potatoes have now been in the ground ten weeks so this morning, after hut duty, I went firkling and found these under one plant, of which the smallest one is about the size of a golf ball. I brought them home and for lunch had a few boiled along with a cod and parsley fish cake and some (frozen) vegetable mix. Very tasty! That was followed by some of plot neighbour Brian’s rhubarb with a couple of scoops of vanilla icecream.
I’m grateful to A Midwife’s Muse for giving me a One Lovely Blog Award. I shall do a seperate post about that during the next week or so.
