I haven’t posted for a while.
I’ve been busy with some non-blogging stuff … and intently studying a wasp nest on the east lawn.
Excavation continues and it’s getting bigger. And bigger. As you might suppose, mowing operations have been diverted.
I’ve been distracted too by the sheer number of butterflies on the new verbena beds.
There is a wide selection of species.
Including a long distance migrant, the Painted Lady, which I haven’t seen before.
I’ve also been away on a short holiday. And I’m about to go off again – on a cycling tour of Germany. Which sounds very tiring. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with steely calves … or ones of jelly.
When I return, I’ll do a post about the tropical border. I’ve been quite pleased with it this year. (If only because it almost hides that huge satellite dish).
Until normal service is resumed, I’ll raise a bratwurst to you. Wiedersehen.
