A Summer's Day

Today is one of those warm sunny days that feels like summer, which we've nad very few of this year here in Edinburgh.

Here are the bright flowers at Harrison Park

They're full of solitary bees and hoverflies with only a few bumble bees.

This hoverfly is a syrphus ribesii



Along the canal, the thistle down is out


and the verges are bright with flowers

and the tufted vetch is starting to pod, even as it's still in flower

Lovely to see plenty of common carder bees

Yay for summer. We have had about the driest and warmest on record here in the Pacific NW - "el nino" and "the blob"!
