The magnolia’s nearly out

Yesterday was so warm after lunch.
There is so much to do in the garden.
I should really have been out there weeding and seeding. Instead I sat in the recliner and listened to a rather good play on the radio then read for a while, before a long walk with a friend and her excitable lab. All wonderful in the beautiful Spring sunshine!

I thought I’d better make the most of it all, just in case these few days will be our ‘early Summer.’

No time to lose. No, time to lose. Make time to stand and stare.... Did you see that?

  1. I don’t think so. I think the fireglow comes out a little later and is further along int he bed. having said that I can’t remember this one’s name, but rather pretty.

  2. Most certainly seven spots, Nym.

    Lovely picture of the little chap. I must admit I’m becoming quite paranoid about counting spots but I haven’t encountered a harlequin yet! I’m not sure what to do about it anyway: am I I supposed to exterminate it?

  3. Hmmm, I’m with you on this Ara, as I haven’t yet positively identified one yet. The only thing I usually kill without a qualm is a wasp. First one today.

  4. Maybe Helena. Ring any bells?
    We have had a couple of fine days and bumble bees have been out. Now to pay for it another week of rain!!
