Orchids, Poppies & Cucumbers

The moth trap fared no better last night than previously, with only a Silver-ground Carpet and a Clouded-bordered Brindle present by 00:30 hours, I switched it off.

A little walk early on produced the first of the Northern Marsh Orchids which have just started to come into flower, rather late this year.

 Nothing really new except perhaps for some Welsh Poppies. Though another garden escape, the spot was exactly the same as I last recorded them here in 2004. Presumably the soil had been disturbed allowing the seed to germinate.

Back in the garden, I found a Cucumber Spider Arianella sp. on one of the Lilies.
