So my plans to head further afield today were scuppered by my complete failure to wake up early!! Rumours I had sponge poisoning were outrageous and largely started by Margie😂😲 So back to the Patch,it would be interesting to see the difference between an evening or morning visit!!! Margie had decided to join me so we set off arriving on "Patch" just after 10.30AM. Disgraceful😂.
I figured today would be all about the insects and so it proved, we headed down the Glades, these are very overgrown with tall vegetation with the path at times almost impassable, very different to last year,no doubt the lush plant life fueled by the wet spring and far less people visiting, I lead the way bravely parting the vegetation despite the constant stinging from the nettles and the pricks from the brambles and thistles, though spare a thought for Margie, being vertical challenged she practically disappeared several times with plants way over her head!! 😂😲 However she was rewarded with some excellent pictures of various bugs the names of which I don't know!! I'm perfectly happy to enjoy the diversity of life on earth without sticking labels on it but if you want to ID some go for it!!!
|Quite like this 2 hoverflies in a Poppy!!|
|The glades, It's a jungle out there!|
|Margie's take on Wolstonbury Hill|
So that was about that,I forgot to mention I was savaged by a Horsefly but bravely didn't go to A&E!!😢
