…lots of beautiful things! Wow is all I can say. Mother Nature, I have really slagged you off lately, due to the whole ‘rainy summer’ thing. But after the beautiful pieces of art I’ve just seen I will admit you do some good work.
Hubby finally, after much, much nagging, went through all his piles of crap in the garage and tracked down his childhood microscope. Then, because all men are boys at heart, he used it to channel the sunlight and burn a cork. For no reason other than he could. Tsk.
Once he’d finished doing that and went off to mow the lawns (also after much, much nagging. Don’t get me wrong, I would happily do it myself but I’m not allowed. Apparently I don’t do it properly. Whatever.)
So off I went, around the garden, looking at flowers, leaves, any bugs I could find. Unfortunately the camera doesn’t capture what I see through the microscope, but here’s some of the pics I took just now.
I also managed to get up close and personal to a few insects (although, alas, no spiders. What a terrible shame. I was really looking forward to it too).
These flies (although they annoy the heck out of me in the house) are actually quite pretty. Really bright, sparkly colours.
This guy was cute
