I’m having trouble with my back door. Before, it wouldn’t lock – now it is the opposite. However, whilst struggling to get it open yesterday, I saw a Red Admiral on the ‘patio’, which made the episode less frustrating.
There seem to have been a lot of butterflies about, lately. I had been thinking they weren’t coming this year – and now I am pleased it is more than just the Cabbage Whites.
These might not generally be considered to be friends but worms are definitely way up there. They too seem to be worryingly absent, although the recent rain has brought some to the surface. My soil needs considerably more organic matter, though.
Anyway, here is a link to an interesting post about earthworms for all the stuff you didn’t know about them: Glorious Earthworms. Hopefully, they are not another creature on the verge of extinction.
