Unsung Heroes


Look after the bugs; and everything else will look after itself...

On a day that butterfly population rates are reported to have declined depressingly.......

Here are some shots of our fellow residents taken by someone who knows how to drive his camera; taken at the 'stead last Summer...

Yes I am getting on with seed orders; and lovely murky weather for it too.
 But that can make it hard to imagine that warmer weather will return; and that Spring will ever be sprung enough to sow new crops.

All these jewel like creatures living here in such abundance give some hope.

 And justification for not always being on top of the weeding; it means the wee beasties get plenty forage.


Yes of course I will give them all names soon, in order to satisfy the entomologically curious ......

More distractions.......Just what I need

But in the meantime...
