that the weather has improved and I’ve done some plotting the past few mornings.
I forgot to mention that a couple of weeks ago I was weeding and disturbed a rather distinctive Cinnebar moth, which is one that I’ve not seen before. Today the dog rose was covered in ladybirds which was good to see, on one of the first white love-in-a-mist flowers was a bright green Flower beetle and a blue butterfly fluttered past me disappearing into the potato foliage.
The rose Pretty Lady would normally be just starting to flower now but has been blooming for the past couple of weeks, and I’ve already started dead-heading it.
It provides a real focal point and various people have stopped to look, smell and talk about it yesterday and today.
The other flowers that are really looking good are the collomia grandiflora. This picture shows how small the flowers are. See also the new header picture.
This coming week, weather permitting, I’ll be sowing and resowing various flower and vegetable seeds. I’ll also be planting my cucumbers, squashes and tomatoes.
Happy gardening, and have a good week!
