I love to get up early on Sunday mornings, in particular in the holidays as there are few vehicles on the road, no aircraft flying in to the airport, no trains, no strimmers, no lawnmowers or chain saws….just me and the birds! Yes to noise free Sundays (mornings at least)!
The warmth has encouraged the Buddleja (Butterfly bush / Sommerfuglbusk) into flower, but this small tortoiseshell (neslesommerfugl) still prefers Alliums!
Buddleja isn’t edible, but it is one of the best entomentals (insects love them and so do we; it would be an edi-ento-mental if it had also been edible!)
I don’t think I’ve blogged about a very important component of the garden ecosystem…so presenting:
The garden would be a quieter place without this one!
