I have a lot of photos that I sadly haven’t shared yet, so I’m going to try and sort them all out and post them. Firstly here are a couple of shots of the Buddleia. This is actually from a few days again as now many of the flower heads are fully open. Strangely we haven’t seen that many butterflies yet. I’m sure there were a lot more this time last year but maybe it was later in the year … anyway, we shall see! Hope to see a mass of fluttering wings soon.

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. Buddleia is brilliant for butterflies … if they aren’t on the buddleia they must still be hiding! Hopefully they’ll be out soon for the Big Butterfly Count starting next weekend ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve printed out the id chart to remind me and will try and do a count when the weather picks up (lots of rain at the moment)


      2. Yes, we’ve had rain just lately too – though today we’ve had 2 Small Tortoiseshells fly into the house … perhaps they were looking for shelter too! ๐Ÿ™‚
