Our first large picking of Loganberries today, they are ripening very quickly now, hopefully this will mean a few pounds in the freezer before the end of the season Grin

Well far from suffering in the heatwave, the magpies seem to positively embrace it. They were back today laying on the lawn in full sun with their mouths open. Smile

In my blog a few weeks ago I mentioned how Taffy had brought home a Hornet to play with and how I'd managed to set it free unharmed - I'm beginning to wonder if that was wise!

Every morning I have a hornet in the garden hunting butterflies over the scabia. I have watched it. When it spots a butterfly it will go down low and try to swoop up and over the plant to catch the butterfly unawares...............I couldn't believe it when the butterfly actually manages to get away (they seem to fly faster then a hornet!!).

I've tried and tried, but no shareable photo as yet!

A few shots of our "Waterless Garden" which has just about reached its peak by now. Still got the grasses to flower and one or two of the more Autumn perennials to come but its not doing too bad despite the heat and lack of rain Smile

About 4lb of Loganberries picked (mostly now in the freezer) and with luck, about the same still to come. I like this time of year Grin

How lovely Brian.

I've noticed the last two days that the feeders are staying full longer. Fewer starlings seem to be visiting and when I fill up about 4.00pm the feeders are still full in the evening. Great news. They're finding their own feet and saving me sacks of money in the process. Smile I hope it's not just an aberation to do with the hot weather.

thanks both.

I wish our Starlings would leave home, they are dominating everything else that tries to visit the garden and are pigging everything that Pam puts out, chucking what they don't fancy all over the floor!

HeHe. That's what starlings are for. Get used to it. Grin

I never see starlings in my garden!

All the other birds have gone quiet too - moulting I suspect!

Pesky squirrel has found yet something else to eat in the garden! It's a crop or something that's sprouted from some bird seed I expect but I don't know what it is. Anyone know? (Silly question, someone always knows these things. Smile)
