Yet none of our books could help us to identify this splendid caterpillar we found in the garden today.
|at least it's on a weed|
|it seems there are rather a lot of caterpillars using a yellow and black colour palette|
Back in the garden, the spiders (which will obviously not be in our insect book) have been busy wrapping up the plants in a dense web.
And the patio roses we bought back in early May are now blooming their hearts out.
|The labels must have lied about the colours. I think we are going to have to separate these!|
The weeds are growing apace, but it's way too hot at the moment (28°C) to garden. So I'm blogging about the garden instead.
