Se the ‘before’ on Just Snaps.
Yesterday I squashed a mosqito.
Today I’m counting butterflies! Small Tortoiseshell and a Painted Lady!
Could it be that summer is here?
I took this photograph this morning. I couldn’t see if it was Howard or Hilda, but I’m sure it was one of our resident wood pigeons. They nest at the bottom of the garden.

Every day that I am at home my day starts in the same way
With two photographs
It’s the view from my back door – and I’ve followed the seasons for two years or so like this.
Full details of the challenge, and many more entries can be found here. An entry from Just Snaps will follow soon.
Nasturtiums, always add a bright splash of colour to any garden. Equally at home in pots, hanging baskets or even the ground itself their only drawback is that they are also loved by blackfly an aphid which is itself loved by ants! Keeping them at bay can be a full time job, but their yellow, orange and red flowers are a reward in themselves. The leaves, and the flowers, are also a tasty addition to salads! Our daughter, then aged 3, discovered the peppery flavour while we were on a holiday in Scotland. We still pull her leg about it, even though she is now old enough to discern whether or not eating one is a good idea.
So, they are to be recommended if you want something different, but I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting to see any for sale. Well, I did, on Saturday – and here is the proof!
The picture is a little blurred as I was trying to ‘shoot from the hip’, as it were. I didn’t want to draw too much attention to the attention I was paying to the display!
Enjoy your food today – whatever you are eating ;)
I’m sharing this picture later in the week on the garden blog, however, it made me smile so much when I saw it this morning that I’m sharing it with you all now.
I love the colours and all the textures. Most of all I love the frilly edges… Just like torn paper. If you’d like a few more smiles I suggest you take a look here :)
We’ve had a very hectic several days. Sorry if I’ve missed seeing your blog, I don’t think I can catch up with them all, but I’ll be reading again from this evening.
