I'm doing a bit of a happy dance this evening (well - I'm waving me legs around feebly!) because I have finished work for a week. Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!
I found this pic on my phone earlier that I'd forgotten about. It was taken a few weeks ago of the scraggy bit of buddleia which has self seeded itself in the tarmac and stands at the entrance to the business park where I work. I was amazed to see literally 'swarms' (hmm what do you call a lot of butterflies? a swarm? a herd? a flutter?) Anyway.... the flowers were absolutely smothered in Peacock butterflies. I've never seen so many in one place.
|Five butterflies on this patch alone - one is a bit of a blur on the bottom flower bract and another with closed wings on the top most flower - click on the pic to enlarge it.|
And finally, my little potato family. Allotment potatoes are far more interesting than supermarket ones don't you think?! hee hee... and yep - I really did tie a bit of ribbon around Daddy Tato. Cos that's how I roll!
|We are family - I've got all my tatoes with me!|
Have a great weekend!
