I thought I had plenty of bugs and slugs and creepy crawlies to show off with when I did this post and then, (were they feeling left out?) a whole new army of bugs moved in …

I took myself off to the book store and came back armed with what I thought was a book about local bugs – alas, it was a British book (yes I know, I’m blonde and not always very bright – my excuse is it was the ONLY “bug” book available at Exclusive and I assumed it would be a local book, plus, I was in a hurry!). So I’m no wiser than I was last time I posted on bugs in my garden.

Here are the latest summer invaders!

Yikes! He was Huge!Yikes! He was Huge!

The last one was dragged in by my cat and I let nature take its course – Dexter finished him off. The bad news I guess is that if there is one of these there are probably lots more.

Happy Gardening
