Flowers, Bees & The Return of the Flying Snail

Out with Bella this morning, it was bright and warm - enough for a sun umbrella to be in use.
Bindweed flowers have withered to leave these seed pods.
Sunflowers have done well in the last few weeks
Good bit of recycling of old tent poles in the garden.
This bee worked its way right round the flowers on this teazle.
Lots of work has been done on this house, and now they have a nice new marker on their gatepost.
 I liked the ski run sticker on the back of this car.
Back home, I fought off my cold/sinus attack with a burst of hoovering and mopping. Stopped to admire yet more bees working their way around our nepeta.
This is Charlie, our neighbours' cat. They are often away at weekends and he's a sociable animal, and likes a fuss.
The predicted rain finally arrived - a little later than expected, but heavy enough when it did come.
At the front of the house, this snail was nearly at the top of the window (it's subsequently disappeared so it must have climbed even higher or taken a dive).
This day a year ago, Tudor was wrestling to fit our new kitchen sink in a corner with seemingly no 90ยบ angles whatever.
