We had a glimpse of sun, I was at home for a change with a chance of some downtime. I looked at the garden and saw the weeds starting to take over. Time to get stuck in I thought 🙂 First up, removing all the dandelions that had shot up taking the space of all the other colourful plants. Before I started digging I took a few moments quickly with the camera and not the spade. Dandelions are a fond visiting place for many little buzzing characters.
Of course, these yellow headed haunts of the pollinators would be gone by the afternoon’s end. I am sure they will rise again knowing my ungreen finger skills but I have left plenty more varieties of plants for them to enjoy. Bees filling their pollen sacks, butterflies in chasing and mating mode. Job done. Coffee o’clock. Sun was out. Calm peace and nature buzzing by.
When I am out on my walks, with camera, I always find it fascinating to look down amongst the flowers or to see the ground around us is absolutely full of life busily getting on with its day. It felt a real shame to have to dig up the dandelions they were supplying so much to the insects and more. Alas, had to be done in the name of a vain green lawn.
And to be honest, as we all know. It doesn’t take them long at all to grow back again! 😀
