We had a nice walk in Saughton Park yesterday. Some of the late roses were looking particularly fine
and some are still in bud
There's a lovely stone rose near one of the entrances to the park
We were pleased to see a few hoverflies around, though it was difficult to get photos as it was very windy most of the time. This Sun Fly (aka Footballer Hoverfly) Helophilus pendulus stayed still for long enough on this Yarrow plant to be photographed
Meanwhile I'm delighted to have another haiku featured in the Haiku Girl Summer, this time in the Sun-baked issue! You can read the whole issue here.
