Old Faithful spent all day looking out of the wiindow waiting for the rain to stop.
It did - just after 3pm.
It takes longer to reverse out of the driveway than it does to drive to the dandelion field so within minutes Old Faithful was positioned in front of the usual hogweed/ragwort/yarrow spot.
A few dandelions were open and held hovers, as did the hogweed though the strong wind was a bit of a handful.
The ragwort was the key to building up a few species in a limited time.
