Indoor Bugs and Conkers to Come

Caught sight of this little bug climbing up my curtains one night:

and this green Shield Bug spotted inside the conservatory door at bedtime:

A sign of conkers to come in the Autumn. These Horse Chestnut Tree flowers are almost at eye level which makes it easier to get the odd snapshot:

Being able to get that close, and still have my feet on the ground, the subtle colouring can be seen.

  1. Never seen Horse Chestnut flowers before; they are quite intricate and, as TWG says, lovely.

    1. Wilma: At about eight inches tall the flower spikes are quite spectacular close up. That is the only young tree small enough to get that close to them.

  2. They are impressive blossom. One of the best.
