        • I love seeing the sheer number of bees that a garden designed around them can attract. It’s fascinating to see the different types we regularly get. Currently at the front the nepeta, astrantia and lupins are attracting loads of bees and we have bumblebees nesting in the soffits so they don’t have to go far to get a meal. Yesterday was red tailed, tree bumblebees and white tailed/ buff tailed (can’t tell which). The carder bees seem to particularly like my rasps at the back. Get less honeybees but still a few.

          • Spot the fox. Was having fun in my border. Had two of them in the garden last night. Think they were young ones. Click image for larger version

            • This happens as soon as we water the lavender. Only do it to attract insects! Didn't realise they had stripey antennae.

                  • Hummingbird Hawk Moth. Sorry about poor pic. Good as modern phones are, there are limits. Look carefully on left and you can just see its proboscis dipping into the lavender flower. Click image for larger version

                        Small tortoiseshell? Ventral views are seldom shown in "what butterfly" books.

                          • Marbled white, its a bit blurry, darn thing wouldn't settle, though I stood and watched it for ages. Apparently, though it's white, it's actually categorised as a brown butterfly. A first for me, never seen one before.

                              • Me neither. Looks like we don’t get them this far north.
