The pink one is Pink campion,

The blue is Bugle - a wild form of Ajuga.

Euonymus with kidney spot ladybird

Ladybirds don't kill plants - they eat the harmful insects  - PLEASE don't spray it.

Kidney spot ladybirds eat scale insects - have a look and see if your euonymus is suffering from a an infestation of scale insects and if so, be thankful that you have kidney spot ladybirds

I just leave the seed to develop and ripen, and then when the pods are beginning to open I cut the stem off and swish it around the garden where I want more foxgloves.  Then when the seedlings appear I thin them out and transplant some and then leave them to it.  Simple

wasps in my polytunnel

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 10:50

We've had a recent influx of ladybirds - they're all over the runner beans and I came indoors yesterday with several on me - I had to go outside again and release them.

We have several  wasps around - have had all summer - there's a lot of old trees around here - I wonder if they provide good nest sites ...?
