I’m feeling very English…my recent blog posts have all focussed on the weather & my garden! Well…this one isn’t much different!!
The dew was still wet on the grass & on leaves, the sunlight making everything sparkle.
The sweet peas…
…& there are thousands of these tiny buds arching over my ‘coffee corner’…each one will be a perfect white rose in a week or so!
The Aquilegia is now in full bloom…I love this delicate plant & this deep purple variety is just stunning this year!
Impatiens…or as I always think of them…’Busy Lizzies’…remind me of my Mum, so I love them!
Sadly, so does this fellow & his many relations!…but we have a secret weapon in the face of such pesky little blighters!
We have two regular night time visitors to our garden…Hedgehogs, Speedy & Spike! I am hoping that at some point, their appetite will outrun that of the slugs & my blooms will be safe!! Beats pesticides any day of the week!!
Now…I am asking for some help here! Can anyone tell me what this little fellow is? I have seen his kind many times before…I don’t think he is a Bee as such, he hovers……& he settles & seems to feed on the flowers of my Ceonothus, but I don’t know what he is!!
All & any suggestions & info welcome!
There is no need to say that it is now only THREE days till we fly to Chicago…but I will anyway!!!! I am all ready but for packing those last minute bits & bobs & am just SOOOO excited it is not true! I will be back to post before we go…in the meantime, have a fabulous weekend, whatever you have planned…or whatever the weather turns out to be where you are!
Thanks for dropping by!
