We had an overripe melon which I put in the front garden for the birds, but was only visited by a few slugs once the weather turned mild.
Yesterdays (Sunday) mild weather was a welcome change. The early frost melted away, or turned to steam as in the image of our garden fence.
This large hoverfly (Myathropa florae I think) is sunbathing on our rockery. It did feel quite warm outside, at least warm enough for me to take this picture wearing a t-shirt.
