Saturday was the last of my flower learning sessions with Harry from
You can see all the action here
But my favourite plant of the day was
Round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia)
I have been wanting to see this plant for ages, and to think I have walked past it many times before, when out walking on Baildon Moor.
It is very tiny
With a gilt free few days of work, as they have stopped all overtime and the weather has been quite good, I have been of out with the camera, should have been at home cleaning as we go away next week. Son number one been left in charge of the dog and house, son number two going on his very first trip abroad with friends !!!!!!
As it 's
this has been the inspiration behind my #30 Days Wild.
David has been using a Pit-fall trap to see what Beetles he has in his garden.
I had a ice cream tub and in the name of science I finished the ice cream, well it would be rude not to.
Getting my husband to dig the hole late at night while he was in his PJ's was the hardest part.
Pleased to say I had one Black Beetle and a Woodlouse, will leave it in and see what else I get.

A visit to Tong Park in Baildon was a wash with insects in the warm weather.

|Blood-vein (Timandra comae)|

As Tong Park is not far from the Nature reserve at Denso, I made a quick visit there too.
I will leave you with a video, I made of the Tree Bee drinking the sugar water I saved the other day, it's the first time I've really tried filming on my camera.
