It was so beautiful yesterday, the sky was bright and the sun was warm. We spent all morning and some of the afternoon pottering in the garden. Pruning bushes, taking the old heads off Sedum and Hydrangeas. Pulling up the already encroaching weeds and brambles.
There was quite a lot of wildlife in the garden
We spotted a Comma butterfly
The sage was full of Ladybirds
Both of these are seven spot ladybirds
The frogs were croaking in the pond; every time I looked into the pond there was plenty of activity, there must have been about ten frogs in there and a couple of newts too.
This friendly frog allowed itself to be photographed
By the end of the day there were four areas of frog spawn.
The heather was alive with bees, so hard to photograph. I may have caught one in the photo below.
It was good to get out in the garden and feel the warmth of the sun as we worked.
I did take half an hour out of the garden to make some scones for afternoon tea I thought we deserved them and they were lovely with crab apple jelly.
