just wanted to report some good ecological news: moving the insect hotel
to the sunnier end of the balcony has had a pretty immediate effect -
lovely black and dark orange native bees are busy coming in & out of the
little bamboo tubes & doing their things inside. thanks for the tip, mez! :)

not so great is the population explosion of aphids on the basil & little
black fly thingies on the mint & the rucola. hopefully my digital
control methods (slaughter by finger squishing) & some water spraying
will stop them from getting out of control until the ladybirds &
hoverflies discover this new fast-food outlet ...
