Colours of Summer

It's warm and sunny today and lots of flowers are in full bloom on Arthur's Seat. There are some lovely colour combinations, here we have birds foot trefoil, white clover and vipers bugloss

Even alone, the vipers bugloss is a wonderful mix of colours

and the lady's bedstraw is wonderfully bright

There are ladybirds everywhere at the moment, Crafty Green Boyfriend captured this photo of some of them 

and I liked this view of the ladybird at the top of the umbellifer flowerhead 

We found quite a few cinnabar moth caterpillars on the ragwort 

We were delighted to meet this lovely young rabbit (Crafty Green Boyfriend took this shot)

Hope the bunny's safe from the ravens that are nesting on this part of the hill!

Beautiful. Didn't know that ravens posed a threat to rabbits. I'm thinking maybe the young ones.

Greetings from London.

Hi Cuban, I'm not sure how much of a threat, but I wouldn't want to be a baby rabbit near where ravens nest,

News Flash - the Linden outside the window here in the Pac NW IS blooming now - Bees, bees, bees!!!

Crafty Green Poet said...

Hi Rabbits Guy, that's great, the bees always love the linden flowers!

Bunnies notwithstanding it's good to hear that there are Ravens on the Seat and have made a comeback to Edinburgh along with the Sparrowhawks and the Buzzards!
