Six on Saturday – 12th June 2021

Mid June – and like The Propagator my garden “has been running away from me” too. Weeds everywhere but particular the vegetable path. So I am not going to show you that – just some pretty flowers (and a few insects) instead!

First this week a pink geranium – sorry don’t have a name, with a visiting hoverfly (Rhingia campestris).

Next one of my favourite June combinations – buttercup and red campion – these are both flowering under the hedge.

Delphiniums are another summer favourite – just coming out now.

The garden is busy with bees at the moment – always a joy to see. The white tailed bumblebees seem to particularly like the lupins.

Sitting on the lupin leaf I spotted this lovely blue damselfly too.

And finally this week a red and yellow aquilegia. The white tailed bumbles also like this one.

Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six On Saturday.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge #103 – Surprise

I took this photo because I liked the look of the water, chain and blue of the boat. But I was surprised to find when I downloaded it onto my computer that the chain and boat had a number of damselflies sitting on them – some looking to be recently emerged.

A cropped image shows them slightly more clearly.
