After the rain in the Park
Tuesday was a rainy day, but by Two, the sun came out and we adventured into the park to see what was about after the rain.
The Robin was very obliging and stayed to have it's photo taken.
There were a few Snails on there way out of a wall.
Found a species of the "Ribes" family, ( Gooseberry for example)
It has beautiful flowers when you look close, will follow this plant and see what fruit it has on later in the year.
Have been turning stones and wood over like you do.... looking at what's living in the park. At the bottom of the photo there is a Flat-backed Millipede which I have seen before (last week for the first time!) But can you see the small hairy bug on the wood above the Millipede, you might have to make the photo bigger to see it, have looked but unable to find out what it is...any ideas.
I have managed to find out what the little insect is called...
Springtail most probably Orchesella villosa, you can find more information here
All the flowers on this Japanese Yellow Rose were very wet.
My first ducklings of the year..so cute...
The flower on the Cherry Laurel are out.
This must be a bumper year for Harlequins and Ladybirds they are every were.
The Yellow Archangel is flowering.
