IN THE GARDEN.

These Bullfinches have been visiting the garden regularly but 
 it was a nice surprise to find a large Stick Insect.

A NEW ADDITION.

We have a new addition to the family. She is an 8 week old Boxer X Collie called Gracie.
We lost Rosie, our 6 year-old white Boxer some time ago
and have really missed having a dog in the house. 










  With Finley, our 10 month old grandson.

CATCHING UP.

These were taken over the last couple of days, mostly by Sue. 
Give it a few more weeks and most of these will be finished. 
What a shame.

SOUTHERN HAWKER
This Hawker is half-way through eating a fly, you can still see its head.
The poor thing was still struggling.


Not sure about this Butterfly. I would like it to be a Brown Argus 
but I suspect it is a very brown Common Blue female.
