Pink Frills

Wild Pink Flowers

At the moment the hedgerows are lined with bright pink red campion and it’s making me smile so much. When we lived back down South in Milton Keynes my Mum planted some wild flower seeds and a month or so later these lovely red campion had bloomed beneath the tree in our garden. So now whenever I see those tell-tale bright pink blooms it takes me straight back to afternoons spent lazing in the garden beneath the sunshine.

I’m taking a brief blogging break as I’v got a busy week ahead but I will be back blogging next week!

Amazing Angle Shades Moth

PicMonkey Collage

During the final year of living in Milton Keynes I was lucky enough to spot this beautiful angle shades moth out in the garden. It was a lovely, warm day around mid May back in 2013, and I found this little one resting on the stone steps in our garden. It was lucky I spotted him when I did as I almost stood on this moth! I hadn’t spotted one before and I was completely enchanted by it’s lovely colouring and pattern on the wings. They do remind me of autumn leaves, with their wing shape and length, any they’re definitely one of my favourite moths.

A Little Green Flower Beetle

It feels like it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here and I apologise for that. Life has been running away with me! In my part of the world the countryside has really come to life with beautiful hawthorn blossoms and bluebells, while the local town is full of the distinctive calls from the seagulls and the sight of rabbits grazing the hedgerows at dusk. The promise of summer is definitely on the air and it’s been gorgeously hot here in Cumbria too! This kind of weather takes me back to my final year of university where our revision sessions were taken outside, and I often had the chance to do some wildlife spotting in-between. One of those days was when I spotted the lovely, emerald green flower beetle basking on the leaves above.
