With the wet weather there havenít been many butterflies around but on dry, warm days the rabble of butterflies or if you like the swarm of butterflies all come rolling in. Well just a handful actually. I donít know the names of any except the cabbage white and the red admiral. I did see two brownish coloured ones in what I assumed was a courting ritual as they flew around each other in a sort of aerial chase.

Iíve had loads of what look like very small hornets, barely half an inch long.

Ah - I think our cat's doing a very good job there. Not an elephant in sight in Lymm either.

Just a thought but aren't small hornets just - wasps?

No, I donít think so. Wasps and hornets are two different species Ė I think.

Where is David Bellamy when you need him, or that Kate whatís her name or Bill Oddie?

Yee! Ha!

Iíve got a pure white one with more to come off that particular plant.

Iíve staked it and marked it so that when it goes to seed I can harvest them for next year.
