Purple Poppies are so cool! We had a couple appear last year, but the self-seeding nature of the Poppy has led to at least fifteen flowers this summer. The neighbours are actually asking for seeds. Bless.
This a balloon. We have Virgin TV. Spooky!
Very pleased and excited to have an Adonis Blue land in the garden at the weekend. The Adonis Blue is a species of chalk downland, where it may be found in warm, sheltered spots. The male Adonis Blue has brilliantly-coloured blue wings that gives this butterfly its name, and can be found flying low over vegetation, seeking out the less-conspicuous females that are a rich chocolate brown in colour. The distribution of this species follows the distribution of Horseshoe Vetch which, in turn, follows the distribution of chalk grassland. This species is therefore restricted to the south and east of England. This species lives in discrete colonies.
The vehicle cleans toilets. Lush.
A Wolf Spider with a big egg sack full of ickle spider babies. Now that was a pleasant and surprising find whilst laying on the back lawn
A Cricket on a duvet. Now that is pretty special don’t you think?
Squint and the neon of Folkestone looks like Vegas. I say ‘squint’ – I mean shut your eyes and take a lot of drugs.
‘Atheism is not a philosophy; it is not even a view of the world; it is simply an admission of the obvious. In fact, ‘atheist’ is a term that should not ever exist. No one ever needs to identify himself as a ‘non astrologer’ or a ‘non-alchemist’. We do not have words for people who doubt that Elvis is still alive or that aliens traversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and their cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs. An atheist is simply a person who believes that the 260 million Americans (87 percent of the population) claiming to ‘never doubt the existence of God’ should be obliged to present evidence for his existence-and, indeed, for his BENEVOLENCE, given the relentless destruction of innocent human beings we witness in the world each day.’
