I haven't seen it today but I'm keeping a close eye out as I have never seen the moth before.

I have about 9 plants, loads of flowers and the fruits are just starting to grow.  I have grown them from seed and transplanted to my greenhouse.

I have just been given them some ash left over from my woodburner and they seem to therive on it.

I was lifting my pumpkin to support and found this strange looking caterpillar.  It's about 2 inches long and has really big eyes.After trawling the internet I managed to identify it as an Elephant Hawk Moth Caterpillar. I have taken a picture of him and have put him back in the hope that he will turn into a beautiful moth.
