I don't know what these tiny black beetles are, but there are lots of them all over the daffodils, especially on the stamens. They look a bit like flea beetles, but I'd have thought it was a bit early for them, and I'd expect to see them on the kale, where they're not currently. Whatever they are, this is presumably how pollination works, so there will be plenty of daffodil seed heads, not that we let them stay on the plants. 

I was too busy to blip yesterday, but back to usual routine today. I'm going to have to cut the lawn, and hope that the noise of our ancient lawnmower doesn't give the nesting robins too much of a shock. They're used to me in the garden, so I hope they'll just ignore it.
