Your garden sounds a bit like mine, with some things doing great and others not much at all! It's a shame about the rats and the corn. Rodents can do so much damage!
Thanks Dave. recipe to follow as soon as I get the chance!! Glad you like the insect pics, thank you
That Aubergine & Potato Curry sounds yummy. I haven't made any curries with summer veggies yet. Lovely pics of the butterflies and flowers!

Nice harvests, and cool butterfly pics. It's funny about Starlings...they are an introduced pest in North America, and are a serious problem competing with our native birds.
I think on the whole species are best left in their country of origin, as often introduction upset the local balance, and this sounds as thought it has happened there!
