Hello folks   I've been such a good girl  - instead of playing in the garden I've spent all day waxing and polishing the downstairs floors - rolling heavy rugs and heaving furniture - the floor looks lovely (I really should do it more often )

Who is this please?

I think it's a Black & Yellow Longhorn Beetle 

from what I can find out there are several types, one of which is also known as the Wasp Beetle because it looks so much like a wasp 

Who is this please?

Oh Thank You Neighbour!

We had our first one in the garden yesterday - now the season's started we'll see lots - we're very close to the River Yare and the UEA Broad which is well known for it's dragonflies 

Dare I say.

That is gorgeous - and so cheap - compared to a similar property over here - something like that would cost more than double that here ....

To upload a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet!

If that doesn't work let us know 

Dare I say.

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
