Summer pics from my garden


By Janey


Hello GoY friends! All summer my computer has been messing around which meant I haven’t been able to
upload photos for a few months. Hey presto today things
look to be “working” so here are some pics of plants, insects and creatures that have enjoyed my garden this summer. X

Late sunflowers, I love this creamy lemon shade.

Red Admiral enjoying Rudbeckia lanciniata.

Lots of red, yellows and purples in my garden, Karens pretty Geranium Rozanne.

Achillea Cloth of Gold and Geum Blazing Sunset have been amazing.

Now Teddy, what have you got your eye on?

Baby Wren! She and her Mum spent days in the Robinia
tree….much to Ted’s delight…:o((

Love these old Rudbeckias, they’re nearly like Chrysanths
they’ve such huge flowers.

Fabulous to see this Brimstone butterfly on the Buddleia
Even though it’s been a damp grey summer up here, there’s been lots of butterflies.

Ok Pops, I know your bored, so this is the last pic…:o))

Some beautiful flowers, especially that fancy Rudbeckia. That Pops is a great pussycat - love him!
And how lucky to see a brimstone - don't think I've ever seen one of those. Lovely blog, thank you!

Hi Thrupenny....yes they're both full of character, Pops, likes to ignore me when I call her, or look to my left or right and not at me!! She was enjoying her afternoon in the sun, in prime position!

Thanks Sheila.....the mum Wren had only the one baby...whether Ted had anything to do with that I'm not sure......but she would shout her head off when the cats were around instead of keeping quiet...silly girl!

Thanks Wildrose, I love late summer colour, in fact I've one of the Llandaff Dahlia's children and it's only just opening it's orange red blooms, so that should last for a few weeks yet....:))

Hi Gnarly, I think the Brimstone is my's hard to get a pic of the wings open as it doesn't seem to sunbathe like many of the butterflies. Apparently it's only the male which is the brilliant sulphur yellow.
Pops likes being high up in the garden.....any place that Lottie my JR can't torment her!

Aw thanks Amy, I'd got a camera full of pics waiting to go on the computer.....yes she is so funny....neither of them are lap cats though, they do like their own space......

Thank you Paul!

Hi Sandra.....yes I love the daisy types easy for the pollinators, anything that makes life easy for them is good in my book....:))

Thank you Klahanie!

Ha ha Shirley!

Pleased you enjoyed them Gertrude!
