Taking a break from finishing off the photos from Compton Acres today to bring you a pair of Dragonflies mating in mid-air. Quite tricky to photograph but I’m pleased to have got some half-decent shots.  Rather than joining the mile-high club as is the…

I’m back to my normal life of work etc after holidaying down in Bournemouth with my sister. So I’m cheering myself up by remembering these lovely fiery blooms from Compton Acres last week:

How about some waterlilies? These photos, and some of yesterday’s, were taken at Compton Acres, some lovely gardens in Poole. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area and you enjoy a nice walk among lovely flowers. They also sell delicious quiche in the…

Is it just me or is there a bit of a lack of butterflies this year in the UK? Our Buddleia is blooming, and yet there are hardly any butterflies around. Perhaps it’s the weather – not especially warm and certainly not very sunny at present. It seems to be…

Seems a bit down on last year, though seen more variation this year and also less of the more common ones like he cabbage white, which only saw first the other day. Still expect more later summer.


Also been more bird's this year, leasts crows and magpies and bats in the evening slightly more than lasts year.

Still less mosquitoes than last year, so bonus.

Finaly blackberries seem more spread out seasonally and eaten plenty already past few weeks and expect to still find them up to mid autumn like last year.


Was expecting the flying ants last week, but soon, though few days of rain and last hot spell had an odd pressure change in that was often falling, so expect that may be key factor with the ant's as always in general an indication of rain ahead, but not always.

It seems that butterflies are are becoming a rarer sight around my garden this summer. But last weekend I was pleased to see a nice variety of butterflies for a change. No Small Tortoiseshells though. This weekend the weather has gone downhill again, with…

While at Compton Acres (what now seems like a long time ago), it wasn’t just flowers we saw. In amongst the flowers, in various locations around the gardens were various sculptures. I didn’t photograph them all, but here are a selection of fun things…

As well as the Waterlilies there were a whole bunch of non-water Lilies … if you see what I mean. I particularly love the light on the yellow Lily which I think is a Tiger Lily.

I’ve been taking a lot of photos of flowers over the last few days in Bournemouth. Here are some Anemones for you. More flowers and assorted other things to come!

Yesterday in a break in the weather I had a potter around to see what I could see. There were dragonflies out and about (more of that another day) but also something much smaller and less showy – these little Common Green Shieldbugs. If you’re familiar…
