There are too many Magpies in the garden at the moment. Beware, little one.
The copse is a wonderful place for birds to hide. Overgrown, and more than a little out of control, it gives much needed shelter to wildlife. We all need shelter :)
Butterflies have been few....I have missed them. Meadow brown seemed to have increased in numbers. They hatch between June and August. The Suffolk poet John Clare seemed to describe them in his Shepherd's Calender for June 'Where their old visitors in russet brown, the haytime butterflies dance up and down.'
Wasps are eating the plums. I do not mind, there are plenty to go around. I am happy to share. Sharing is good......I am a first born child, we take care of siblings that follow us. Sharing is good for the soul.
Pretty bee. I do so love the bees.
I wonder if the honey bee has come from the village. We have several bee keepers. I shall be a keeper of bees one day. I will wait until the grand children are a little older.
The humble bumble will always have a place in my heart. Such sweet and gentle creatures. My mother tells me when I was small, I would sit in my Grandparents cottage garden and watch them for ages. I have always had a connection with Dumbledores.......bless the bees.
