At long last there has been some really good weather here in London. I’ve been on the plot before 7.00am most mornings for a few hours before it got too hot and uncomfortable.
Appropriately the first of this years sunflowers was in bloom by Monday, being the variety Ring of Fire.
On a cooler note there’s this rather unusual green flowering gladioli, which I have to say I’m not that keen on. I didn’t buy it but it was among some that I was given which are blue, pink, white and yellow all of which have yet to flower.
It’s been good to see a few butterflies, including several brown ones as well as the usual whites, fluttering around. Even better there were more damselflies, this time Blue-Tailed ones.
Just sitting in the sunshine for a while each morning looking at the flowers and watching the wildlife has been most enjoyable.
Have a good weekend!
