It is such a bright place to visit, a land mark in the village of Hawton, and the only place locally I've seen a hummingbird hawk moth.
It is The House at Valerian Corner, a house beyond the church that on a bright summer's day glows red with its verge full of valerian.
I ran out there tonight, a 7.5km run that I thought would be after the heat of day, but turned out not to be. It was a bit of a slog, although my splits weren't too bad.
No beautiful moths today, just a solitary bumble. But there are a few more hot days to see what pretty buzzers and flutterers I can find.
