In the garden - Saturday, 23rd August 2008

One of my hosts - William (age 14).

Another host - Helen (aged **). My mum (aged 21+) always taught me one doesn't mention a lady's age...

One day this will be a pumpkin.

Helen found this moth chrysalis on a bulrush in their pond. Any ideas on its identity would be welcome.

A Common Darter called in while we were waiting to see if one of the resident Slow Worms appeared.

Later in the day the Slow Worm did come out to bask. My first ever certain sighting of a slow worm - indeed, having seen the leisurely pace at which it takes life I have concluded it is definitely my first one.
