Horse Fly, Door and Biscuits

24 Aug

At the garden centre we bought some Leucanthemum and the sales assistant asked, ‘Shall I get rid of the Horse Fly before you put the plants in your car?’  Yes please was our reply.

A horse-fly, Tabanus eggeri,

Walking through town I noticed a door with beautiful glass which I haven’t spotted before.

Our lovely nephew and family gave us a box of chocolate biscuits, two bottles of wine and a very pretty rose bush to say thank you for lending them our beach equipment and having them  round for supper – it was all a pleasure for us so the treats were both unexpected and special.

It’s my kid  sister’s birthday today so this post is for her! Love you, D.

    I’m going to be a busy-body, know-it-all and suggest your horse fly is, in fact, a drone fly.

    If you squint you can make out the distinct pattern on the back of the fly.

    Aah … bickies!

    Which reminds me, I promised to make a batch before the football this afternoon.

      happy for you to identify the creature – it was the young woman in the garden centre who told us it was a horse fly and I knew no better! Hope your biccies turned out well and that you have enjoyed/are enjoying the football. 🙂
