At home that night the clear highlight was a Mullein, not only a fantastic looker but one I rarely encounter - indeed it was my first for 5 years (and therefore also new for the garden).
Mullein, North Elmham, 6th May
A good showing of Prominents too with Pebble Prominent, 3 Lesser Swallow Prominents and 4 Swallow Prominents, the Pebble and Swallow being new for the year.
