Halfway point...

I can't believe we're halfway through the year already! I think this most years but time just seems to be passing by so quickly and I'm not doing much with my life. I'm currently looking for work but being a carer and helping family out doesn't leave a lot of time to look - I will tell you more about that another time.

I saw my first ladybird on 30th June, it was a yellow one with white spots, I have looked it up and it was an Orange Ladybird. I found it in my trousers that had been drying on the line! I didn't get a good picture as I couldn't get my camera to focus so here is a blurred one!

This flower is growing in one of my pots, I'm not sure what it is though. There seem to be a lot more weeds growing in the garden this year.

It's set to be a hot, sunny weekend here, I hope you have a great weekend and good weather too!

  1. Not a lot of ladybirds about here. Although like you they do seem to land on the washing! I've seen a few on blackfly infested plants along the coastal path, but sadly they didn't seem to be our native one's just those pesky harlequin ones. The flower is valerian (centranthus), it smells a bit off but is great for bees and butterflies. It will self seed easily, and there's a white version which when grown together looks great.


Thank you for your comments, it's lovely to hear from you!
