The garden in June

The pond I dug over the winter is starting to pay off. This month has seen the first damselfly in the garden - a large red damselfly. Common maybe, but still a garden first and very attactive into the bargain.

We also seem to be reaping the benefit of leaving a part of the lawn unmowed, only about 4m square, but it's a real mini-meadow crawling with invertebrates and attracting a very pleasing number of bees into the garden.
