This afternoon I wandered around the garden seeking material for Denzil’s latest Nature Challenge.
Here is a random selection which I hope are accurate identifications, although I would be happy to be corrected by anyone who thinks they are not strictly seed heads. Each image bears a title in the gallery. Adventurous readers may wish to regard this as a quiz.
Because I am easily distracted I have added a hoverfly on a Japanese anemone and a wasp on a geranium Rozanne;
because I like a pun I have included a bee on a sedum;
because this year’s honesty pods appear to have been removed, I have resorted to the archives for these, including one through a fence from 1971.
This evening we all dined on meaty pork sausages; luscious Lyonnaise potatoes; firm broccoli and carrots; and further leftover vegetables from yesterday, with which Jackie drank more of the Sauvignon blanc and I finished the La Vieille Ferme rouge.
