Friend or Foe?

In a few months time these caterpillars will no doubt become beautiful butterflies or moths (and I would be delighted if someone could tell me which, and what variety) but, for now, they are not my friends!  I should now have  a flower border bursting with bright nasturtiums but, as is apparent in this picture, the plants have been decimated by these little gluttons!

Please use the other door

The image below shows the door at the rear of a local church.  It makes quite an attractive picture but it does seem to pose a question: ‘How active is this church community?’

Watching you watching me!

Do you mind!  Taking a bath is a private activity.  Intruders are not welcome!

Rose Bay Willow Herb

There are more waves to come but today we’ll have something a little different.

Autumn

The rosy florets of bay willow

By hoary breath of some enchanter

Are translated into feathery plumes,

White as angel wings,

And leaves, brittle red and papery thin,

Carpet the thirsty brown soil.
