This cactus only blooms a couple of nights a year. Caught it this morning before it had closed up again completely.

Cachgi bwm

Still very few sitings of butterflies in my garden but I did see a few Small Whites, I think the number of spots on the wings tell me that this is female (benywaidd). I have tried unsuccessfully to find its Welsh name so, if you know, please tell me.

@dougewart It’s Gwyn bach! :slight_smile: And it high time you got yourself a copy of Iolo’s LLyfr Nature methinks! :slight_smile:


#3994

Thanks very much @Cetra. I feel rather stupid now as the name is so obvious. I’ll look out for a copy of Iolo’s book it will go nicely with his Llyfr Adar which is always within easy reach of my desk when it isn’t in my pocket.


#3995

They’re both great books! I only just got a copy of Llyfr Adar last week and I’m very pleased with it! Llyfr Natur is always within my reach! :slight_smile:

Found this beauty in my garden yesterday - Gold Spot, so maybe smotyn aur?
I’ve started a blog in Welsh about my garden too btw - it will be about wildlife as well as gardening :slight_smile: Please drop by and have a look :slight_smile: https://ynyrardd.wordpress.com/ :slight_smile:

Excellent! You’ll be fine - same as talking to anyone else! (At this rate, you’ll be on ‘Garddio a Mwy’ before you know it! :wink: )

I heard it live and you smashed it @Cetra - absolutely smashed it. Well done - you were fantastic - you didn’t sound nervous at all.

#4006

Thank you Rich! I think Radio Cymru must have a sound effect machine that makes people sound more confident than they are! :joy:


#4007

Da iawn @Cetra I’d love to have a listen. Do you remember what time you were on?
