I rescued a mole from feline clutches and released him or her, beneath the bramble patch far away from gardens.
On the hedge, I encountered a fairy angel. Or if you want to be scientific, a pterophorus pentadactyla, white plume moth.
I promised to feature him again in another painting before he flew off.
During a trip to Dyrham park. I saw some fallow deer.
And a pond plant that looked like fairy sized trees, or those little ones that decorate Christmas cakes, with snow on. I love those cake decorations.
The pond looked so inviting on a hot day. All I needed was some Gilly weed and I'm sure that I would have met Mer folk here? ;)
Yesterday I saw more slow worm in the compost heap, a grass snake, and this amazing ants nest behind an old roof tile rested up against the chicken hut. (I did put it back carefully after looking)
And lastly, yesterday, what made my day, was seeing another Scarlet tiger moth. And this time it was alive! <3
Now as I come to the end of this post it's July, sixty one minutes into the new month to be precise.I wish you a hot July, that brings a few cooling showers, apricots to eat, (or strawberries if you prefer) and many many flowers.
See you soon! x
