Thanks Pinkie  Yours are looking good too

Lovely pics, your gardens are more advanced than mine and I live so much further south! I suppose the UK has the gulf stream.

It's been a lovely sunny day today and crocuses have been out and the first daffodil. There is a big black insect (?anyone know it) on a pulmonaria which is still mostly in bud.

Hi all, I'll post some pics of my full garden later when I get on the laptop, but for now here is a quick snap I took on the iPad today, I was really excited that my first crocus is about to flower

Can't help with the black insect Lizzie - looks curious.

 This one is shouting "I'm first, I'm first" - hopefully all the others in the garden will be following soon

This was fluttering around my garden today as I was having an after winter tidy and getting garden ready for another year of gardening.  Landed on my gloves I'd taken off.  Not sure if it's a moth or butterfly.  

26/02/2014 at 19:40

Lovely photo's everyone. I know exactly what you mean Busy, I got so excited today day over the merest suggestion of a bud on my Japanese Maple.

27/02/2014 at 20:27

Tim - not an expert on butterflies but it could be a comma ?  Only one i know with wiggledy edges to its wings.   Great pic

Its a butterfly Tim 'Tortoiseshell' it is still classed as common but getting more less seen, unfortunately. Try and attract them please,

Regards

Looks like a Comma to me. Saw 1 here last year, pretty thing

28/02/2014 at 09:54

Definitely a Comma. Torties are more 'solid' - they have more defined triangular  wings.

 They're all lovely whichever type they are. We don't get Commas here but Torties, Peacocks and Red Admirals are quite plentiful. 

and yes - the pic is the right way up - he was on my neighbour's garage enjoying the summer sun!
