First thing though, I lifted our first ever potatoes from my very small and crowded veg patch. One of my favourite new potatoes that I can get from the supermarket is called Anya, it has a lovely flavour. My Mum managed to get some seed potatoes of this variety this year and gave some to me to try out. As you can see, not the biggest yield in the world, but very exciting none the less. My husband and I have just eaten them this evening and delicious they were too!
I noticed the lovely early morning sunlight on our Agapanthus so couldn't resist taking a photo of this beautfiul flower from South Africa.
While Chris and I were having our mid morning cuppa, we noticed that we had two Southern Hawkers that had emerged from the pond. Of course they both managed to be in positions that made them very difficult to photograph, but I managed a couple of shots. They are still there this evening, so maybe I'll have another go at photography first thing tomorrow.
Another visitor today, was my regular male Blackbird. I put out sultanas for him and I swear that he nags me for these regularly throughout the day, sitting in the cherry tree or on the gutters, cocking his head and looking at me as if to say, where's my grub then! As you can see in this photograph, as well as sultanas, he is also eating our lovely cherries from our cherry tree. None for us this year then!
