1 On this gloriously sunny day we went to visit friends for a Pool Party! The sun lit up the surface of the water and made a lovely turtle shaped shadow.
2 There was a nest of swallows in their shed and the babies were just getting ready to fly. Just before we arrived there were five babies lined up on the beam. When we went in to look, one little baby was clinging to the wall and another was still in the nest but all the others seemed to have flown out into the sunshine to join their parents.
3 Some very beautiful and voracious Mullein Moth caterpillars were devouring Scrophularia nodosa – there was hardly a leaf to be seen, just a few flowers left. There were at least a dozen on each plant, very busily munching away.
