I managed to get another photograph of a dragonfly today. I spotted this one while cutting the beech hedge. It was a little worn, possibly having been caught out in a couple of the very heavy showers we had today. I think it is the blue form of a female common hawker, but open to correction. Neil has corrected me – it is a Brown Hawker, Aeshna grandis.
Finally the coneflowers are flowering, but there doesn’t appear to be many flower heads.
The chicks are growing and they had their first explore of the greenhouse today.
And look what my daughter found in the garden, left over from the Easter bunny!!
And finally we have been enjoying the first blackberries from the hedgerows and bog road!
Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
