Very delicate. Leaf has been nibbled by a bug ?

Yes Shirley - probably a slug or snail :-(

Right Andrew, night patrol for you tonight then ! I have had my first sighting of Vine Weevil in my garden, munching away on Forsythia leaves, have disposed of seven so far and am checking daily. Nasty little bugs !

Unusual flowers - look like thrownaway tissues.
