A while ago Eileen when we last had some sun ! Like Toto I love to see all the different bugs esp when gathered on one plant.

its a great photo, hopefully we will have some sun soon.
old irish saying that if the birds build there nests high in the trees then its a sign for a good summer. the magpies nest is at the very top of the tree so fingers crossed the saying is right lol

This is great Bonkers. Not often you get so much on one plant at the same time. Well captured.

Well the rooks here build their nests high up every year so I only hope the saying applies to you Eileen - they sure got it wrong here the last few years x

Thanks Toto thought of you when I saw it heres hoping we see more butterflies and ladybirds to go with them.

Hmmm.....don't like the green and brown flies BB but I do like the hoverflies...They always make me laugh with their BIG eyes, buzzing around pretending to be tough. LOL

What flower is it BB? Cow parsley?

5 Mar, 2009

 

Yes think so Madmum always get confused between this and types of hogweed as often grow together but think the more delicate fronds are cow parsley .

You should hang onto the rooks as long as you can. Country lore says that if rooks desert a rookery then crops would fail. This lore was actually taken very seriously and it is on record that when rooks deserted one farmers land he actually went to their new site and took the nests back to his land. Unfortunately for him, the rooks didn't follow.

BB I just ordered a packet of Queen Anne's Lace seeds because I think they'd be perfect in my garden! I'd love to walk alongside that river, gunnera are spectacular plants (far too big for my garden unfortunately!)

Thanks for that Toto,was unaware of that piece of folklore !

Madmum...hope they do well for you ! : )
