Gardens looking lush




For the first year the gardens really looking lush everythings growing well and there is still loads to put in. Looks like all the fruit trees will be having a crop this year, so that means Quince and Plums as well as apples and Medlars, I’m very excited about our first ever plum and quince crop. My only niggle is that it’s a little too green, must remember to add more flowers for next year, not that I don’t like the jungle look.

Elephant hawk moth finally hatched


This beautiful moth has been doing whatever it does inside it’s chrysalis for the past 8 months, sat on my sons bedside table almost forgotten about. Yesterday morning though as I came out of the bedroom the jar was at the top of the stairs with two very interested cats. It’s almost unbelievable that something so large and beautiful comes from something so small.
