Sunday Safari – Ask and Ye Shall Receive!
It’s made me somewhat sad, so although some flowers have finally opened in the garden, at the same time the peak has passed.
*Edited to add*
Even my small Fuji cherry tree has turned a vibrant red (very early!!) Today has been very hot, I was expecting a pleasant warm day as per the forecast but it was much hotter today than yesterday and I struggled to sit outside from around 11am until well after 2/3pm. The rain still hasn’t arrived that was predicted, I had held off watering the garden, but now I wish I had – soil is cracking again… I assume it’ll come tomorrow or overnight.
I suppose my attentions now have to turn towards Christmas and getting things ready for next spring (some seeds have been sown today)
So, moving on to the safari…
Friday evening I asked for Red Admirals (and Skippers)…
What should I see first thing Saturday morning?
It was our first visitor, at around 8am,
This Peacock got rather close
