would you please consider adding you arthropod spottings toThe U.K Arthropod Survey as they would be interesting contributions,Thanks!http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/4649...
That's a great site. I'm more of a travel blogger though than a garden blogger. I wouldn't have much to contribute, but I can spread the word about it.
Well it will be great to share and learn knowledge from PN. from looking at your profile, I think you might be interested in having a look at my new venture - Gardening Journal International. It is a potential network of blogs where people around the world are inter-linked by their gardening journals. We are just starting out, but already have blogs in Australia, England, and Wales. My mission is to have a blog in every country, sharing knowledge. You can check it out on the link via my profile.
Elizabeth, I don't know about too many other gardeners here, though there probably are a lot. I do know there are some very knowledgeable plant people, but not sure how much they garden.
Thanks Gerardo Aizpuru
Indeed is wonderful grate spotting :)
What a beautiful butterfly! We hardly have any of note in Oregon. I'm missing having butterflies around
Hi dandoucette, pleased to meet you. Yes it is nice to share wildlife in your garden with other gardeners. I am really new to this site, are there many other gardeners then?
Beautiful spotting. Welcome to Noah, it's nice to have another gardener on board.
I am the same. At the age of thirteen (and as a keen gardener and nature enthusiast), I was given the job of looking after my Schools 30ft greenhouse. I tended all the plants, but also used this as a golden opportunity to breed butterflies in there. I had over 100 peacocks, red admirals, tortoiseshells and other butterflies at any one time - happy days in that greenhouse. This was in the days when 'Rural Studies' was a CSE course (36yrs ago).
I remember seeing them regularly as a kid growing up in Bexley but sadly they don't seem to be common at all now. It's good to see this one - it brings back memories!
Thanks KarenL. Butterflies have had a tough time in the UK this year, with so much rainfall. This was the first Peacock I had seen since last summer.
