Both Friday and yesterday morning a butterfly fluttered past me whilst I was pottering. I’m fairly sure that they were small tortoiseshells, which hibernate over the winter then become active again from March onwards.
At home early yesterday evening I caught a fleeting glimpse of a wren out front at home. It’s been a long time since I last saw one, or heard, one of these distinctive little birds.
I dug up some vinca major that I mentioned in this post and replanted it along one side of the the log pile. I’m pleased with this area now but still thinking about what flowers to grow around it.
I often see Harley when I’m walking to or from the plot but don’t always get to say hello.
He’s an amiable eight year old Labrador which his owner got from the Dogs Trust London (Harefield) last August since when he’s made plenty of friends on his daily walks.
As I mentioned in Thursday’s post I sowed some seeds in pots and trays and the first one, a cosmos Velouette, appeared yesterday. I never cease to be delighted, and relieved, when they appear.
Lastly here’s another picture of those lovely white narcissus Thalia.
Have a good week!
