    It's hot here so all the windows and doors are open - we keep getting visited by a large male Southern Hawker dragonfly - it flies through the door and into our open plan living space - it's already been in three times this afternoon and apart from sitting on the furniture and my lap it has tried to mate with a computer cable ... the mind boggles image

    Dove: There have been so many darting around the garden, which has been delightful - saw this on my oregano and managed to take a quick snap before it flew off. If anyone it good at butterflies, could you let me know what it is?

    Great pics, I certainly cannot compete.. I just rescued a butterfly trapped in the shading in my green house.... I think it was a Cabbage White, it better not repay me by laying eggs and the offspring scoffing my cabbage...image

     Thanks Sheps - such a great name for a butterfly. It has something of the fantastical about it!

    Having got used to the moles, voles, field mice and squirrels for over 40 years, rabbits have made an appearance in the neighbourhood. I saw one in the garden yesterday and today I discovered the trailing lobelia round pots has all been eaten  at rabbit chewing level.  I guess I'm going to be on a learning curve of what rabbits enjoy eating.

    Some of this week's highlights from the garden.

    This Jay has been hammering away at the peanut feeder every day this week.

    Didn't manage to get focus on this nervous fox.

    Heard some rustling and munching under the trees, then saw the culprit.

    The garden is also full of slow worms, so much so that I daren't get the mower or strimmer out for any of the wilder areas. Well, that's my excuse image. Seriously though we have dozens of them of all sizes. They are mainly asleep in the compost bins so will try to get some shots of them to share.
