SAVE OUR BUTTERFLIES WEEK 19-26 JULY

These two small white butterflies stayed coupled together for quite a while, fluttering from plant to plant, with me in hot pursuit! I very much wanted to get a photo, having no memory of ever having been witness to this stage of the life cycle of a butterfly. I did feel a little guilty though, for not giving the pair any privacy!

I shall watch out for the next stage, those now fertilised eggs being laid on my nasturtium plants no doubt?

You have an artist's eye, like Gertrude Jekyll. You paint with flowers.

I have never heard of save our butterfly week. I am very worried about our bees, it's so depressing.
