Summer time

Great! At last butterflies are turning up in our garden, the hard weather in Spring must have affected their survival. Not seen any peacock butterflies yet, but whites are numerous and yesterday there were four tortoiseshells on the buddleia. There are very tricky to photograph however.

(That’s not a buddleia, by the way!)

This is a glorious Summer with lots of fruit and vegetables in wave after wave. At the moment we’re on gooseberries and the broad beans are ready too, as the spuds have been for a few weeks now.

Beuatiful skies, and spectacular thunderstorms.

But always at my back I hear,
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near …

Must get on with that storychair today, then tomorrow it’s off to Spoonfest.

  1. We have a lot of whites also and orange tips, good to see the butterflies and other insects catching a break after the recent wet summers in the UK.
