Starting with things which have delighted me in the garden.
I *think* this beauty is a Tiger Moth.
Then to our night flowering cactus. I showed you the bud last week. It comes into bloom in the evening and lasts a day. It is huge (seven or eight inches across), delicately scented and beautiful. So here is the progression. Today it is looking a bit sad - but there are other buds coming on.
As you can see from the last photo in the series the spikes are particularly fierce. It also has fine hair like threads which break off and fester. Jazz bites and scratches me so often I now have Jazz antibodies and no longer get infected when he attacks. The same is not true of this cactus.
I am going to finish with an early morning skyscape which delighted me. In some of the shots those of you with good eyesight will see birds soaring overhead. They were corellas and were making quite a ruckus. A totally unmusical ruckus.
