It’s been a dry and sunny week, and has got rather warm again. I’ve been mostly pottering rather than plotting, and yesterday I made a start on dead-heading the pot marigolds.
This morning I went there early to water all round. I’d opened up the shed and when I turned round saw that Foxy had been resting under the nearby dogrose. She stayed there quite unperturbed whilst I got the watering cans out. I think that she was hoping to see my plot neighbour Fran who feeds her tasty titbits.
As you can see the knee-high sunflowers Music Box are flowering well.
It’s been good to see quite a lot of butterflies fluttering around during the week, and included Small Skippers, Speckled Woods and Large/Small Whites. This was the only reasonable picture that I managed to take, it’s a Small Skipper on the lavender.
The gazania Daybreak that I mentioned and showed in last Sunday’s post has been opening fully in the sunshine and is an amazing silky orange.
Have a good weekend!
