Come take a stroll with me, lets see what we can find.............
Rosa rugosa is heavy with hips. The robins have started to peck at them. They are a firm favourite.
Plums are a plenty but much to high in the tree for me to pick. These are wild trees that grow in the hedgerow around the garden. The starlings and wasps will soon find the plums, I may get one or two if I am lucky :)
The old apple tree has done herself proud.....there are plenty to be picked when the time is right. Blenheim orange can be cooked or eaten straight from the tree. I absolutely love the crisp, slightly sharp fruit.
The cinnabar moth has been busy, caterpillars are working their way through the Ragwort.
Honey bees are a plenty.....the scouts have been out....Purple Loosestrife and Marsh Mallow are a favourite.....the bees will stay until every bloom has been visited, as long as the weather lasts:)
So many juvenile birds in the garden this year. It has been a good 2014 for Blue Tits, Starlings, Wrens, Great Tits and Blackbirds. The Robins have done extremely well, raising two broods in the garden. I have seen several young birds around........
Hope you are enjoying your garden...........and keeping cool.
