I met up with friends to attend a talk by artist Barbara Rae yesterday. It was nice to think about and look at something other than my plants much as I love them. See her work here or if you live near enough do go and see the excellent exhibition at the Burgh Hall in Dunoon.
However, for another week the garden is still my focus....today edges and grass cutting. Crisping up the edges of all the beds defines the shapes and lifts the whole place.
There was a cinnabar moth among the flowers today. I've never seen one before although I knew they had been seen around the meadows. They fly during the day and drink nectar, and the larvae feed on ragwort and groundsel. I got a very good look but didn't have the camera nearby. It is so beautiful! A paradise moment.
Waking at dawn seems to be a new habit and i loved how the shadow landed on my W on the shelf....
