"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Feathered Thorn

I had a nice surprise when I went out to the moth trap yesterday morning - there on the outside of the trap was a Feathered Thorn - my first this year. The only other moth in the trap was a Blair's Shoulder Knot - the number of moths trapped has dwindled even more (at least there were no Large Yellow Underwings)!

Not a lot else to report in the garden although a wren has been visiting each day. Following the nesting attempt earlier in the year have only had the occasional wren sighting so its great to see one visiting again on a regular basis.
