I’ve seen just ten butterflies ( not many) this year which includes this one on the Buddleia today and the five I just found in the loft room fluttering like autumn leaves in and around the sink up there.They were not there yesterday…. and they are not there now! Last seen heading towards the Buddleia!

You are a beautiful double act!

I’m having to get used to the idea that there might have been two of you calling here all this time, when I thought you were just one rather beautiful creature! Perhaps you’ll bring along junior next ? (although, me thinks, the bird bath as it is, will not easily accommodate three of you!).
