Morning. Bright here with the promise of more - and I spend Thurs. afternoons in the office for the dog rescue, just my luck.
Love the moths, agree with Gary that they're very neglected as a species. I think we do have some beautifully marked ones here but many are very tiny. Hawk moths, I think, can hold their own with many of the exotic ones.
Pam, I am waiting for my neighbour's Leycesteria to fruit so I can beg a few berries for seed. I cannot find the plant in the garden centres that I frequent and it was recommended to me as suitable for the chickens' free range area. It is a welcome splash of colour at this time.
Nola, you have probably already said this and I missed it - whereabouts in the country are you?
Flo - I have taken a pot of cuttings from my Leycesteria for you and put them in my greenhouse - keep your fingers crossed that a couple will root
