From early childhood I have felt a connection with Nature. I am in my comfort zone when I am surrounded by Nature’s amazing greenery…..
Or the blue / greens of the ocean.
In my garden, I get a deep sense of pride and joy when the things I grow can, in turn, provide food for our beautiful bumblebees (and hoverflies)…

.. Or butterflies.
And when our unique Irish hares visit, it is an extra special day.
My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature. Claude Monet

Look what decided to pop onto our lunch table on Saint Stephens Days (Boxing Day).
Poor thing much have pupated somewhere in the house and the warm temperatures made it emerge too early. We tried to give it some sugar water. It was about till yesterday but haven’t seen it today.
A gallery of sharp thistles for this week’s – one a week photo challenge. While thistles can be invasive and are seen very much as “weeds”, they are a great source of pollen and nectar for late summer pollinators.
