Time to Observe

Leave a comment

I have been taking time out over the last few days to observe what is going on in my garden. I posted some photos of some of the selection of flowers I have available for my fussy honey bees, one of which I identified from a post by Fodrambler entitled “Great Mullein and the Mullein Moth”. I didn’t have Mullein moths on my plant but, when I went back to look at it, a quite impressive Longhorn Beetle was sitting there on one of the leaves so I took a photo of it and here it is…

Quite uncommon in the UK apparently only recorded in Breckland, Norfolk until fairly recently.

Uncommon or not, he is very welcome in my garden:)

Just sharing ways I am trying to make ends meet and live more frugally. Also the need to live better with less and reduce the impact of my family on our precious natural resources.
