but the the temperature here looks like reaching 30 C (86 F) by Sunday which is way too hot for me! If it does then I’ll be doing little more on the plot than going early to top up the ponds, do any essential watering and pick some salad leaves.
At this time of year breakfast is a couple of wholewheat biscuits with semi-skimmed milk and a dusting of demerara sugar. I know that it’s good for me but it is pretty bland. However this week I’ve been picking strawberries and a few of these added to the cereal make it taste a whole lot better!
Here in the UK it’s National Insect Week so I thought that I’d keep a look out for insects apart from bees and ladybirds. Needless to say I’ve seen nothing of note but a few fellow lawn loungers have photographed some wonderful insects recently. Doris took this dazzling fly, Glo this superb dragonfly and Uphilldowndale a fascinating pond skater. These all show the amazing diverse world of insects that we so often overlook.
