Where did July go?

I took lots of photos in July of first sunflowers, sweetpeas, sweetcorn, new signs, globe artichokes just coming into flower, baby newts but now they seem rather out of date. Think I need to take some new ones now!

End of July: there are lots of gatekeeper butterflies at the moment, especially on the flowering marjoram/oregano.  We should divide it and grow more of it - it is pretty, scented and handy in the kitchen -  and also popular with bees and butterflies. We also have a second flush of cinnabar moth caterpillars on some of the younger ragwort but also groundsel. Do look out for them - they are stripey brown and yellow.
