A break in the wet weather yesterday about 5 p.m. allowed me to 'shove in' a few plants I'd moved. Whilst pulling up some faded forget-me-nots a fresh Xanthogramma pedissequum came walking out!

Nice surprise.

Thanks for this day-glo stunner, Jim, and I agree with Nigel. No matter how many times you see it... No sign in Bedfordshire yet this year, where the final two days of the Bank Holiday weekend were rough enough to have grounded albatrosses, let alone hoverflies!

I gather it's been better in the north; perhaps Roger is up there?
