Alongside another car park, on the crumbled corner of a brick wall, a small scrambling vine of Bittersweet, also known as Woody Nightshade, has a few purple-and-yellow flowers and its first few berries, which are as yet green. In contrast, the Hedge Mustard on the same corner has stiff straight stems, tiny cross-shaped yellow flowers. To me it seems to have a spiky appearance with the seedpods pressed close to the stems.
The Marigolds between our patio and the hedge are attracting Hoverflies, on lands on the table in front of me and I notice that, on the top of its head, it has a small gap between its compound eyes. I guess this makes it a female, as the male has eyes which almost join on top of its head.
A Green-veined White touches down on a petunia. Morning and evening a Grey Heron flies over the house, from the direction of the wood.
