My new garden is slowing gaining it’s little community of creatures and plants. I’m contemplating the development of a blog devoted just to it – from the beginning I’ve been recording the various stages of its creation, something I wasn’t as able to do with my previous proper garden. So, perhaps I’ll put it together, to encourage others to ‘get growing’……..
Anyway, here’s a little selection of those treasures that caught my eye this morning – may you find something to treasure in them also.
While I was doing that, a bee dropped in 🙂 It seemed almost to be dancing for joy as it moved across the blossoms…..
If you look very carefully, you can see a spider hiding between the petals. What a clever place to hide!
Growing around the sunflowers are pumpkins and they are always buzzing with life!
Sitting on a pumpkin leaf, was this tiny little fly. Looks like he’s already begun on the St.Patrick’s Day celebrations!
Over in another section of the garden, where I’d been watering earlier, I found the tiny conical snail making it’s way down a plant stem. Often I’ve envied them having such a portable home……
I am thrilled to see this new visitor! Just look at those tiny feet 🙂
Have you ever played with making shadows on a wall? I wonder if this is what the little creature was doing…..
This looks sweet and innocent but don’t be fooled! It will grow into a furnace – a red hot chilli pepper!
Finally, I thought this looked like open mouths singing…. and there could only be one song……
