Yesterday started off dull so I posted this flowery sunshine on Twitter, Facebook and a couple of the gardening forums to cheer everyone up.
At the plot I tidied up the perennial cornflower (centaurea montana) which had finished flowering. On Tuesday I mentioned it’s National Insect Week so I kept a look out for any interesting insects. I saw these two, which I think are young Kentish Snails, being only small finger tip sized.
On a pot marigold (calendula officinalis) was this Hairy Shieldbug.
Collins Guide To British Garden Wildlife, which I bought a couple of years ago, has proved invaluable in identifying such insects.
I also collected some Poached Egg plant seeds, although I’ll leave most to self-seed as I usually do.
Have a good weekend!
