Sedum spectabile


Sedum spectabile (Sedum spectabile)

I'm hoping that as the flowers open, the butterflies will return after the awful weather we've had.

I do hope that they'll be back. I still haven't found out where they go in bad weather....just curious!

They can detect bad weather up to several hours away, they hide or sit under or on leaves,Peacocks in rabbit burrows, commas in log piles or hollow tree trunks, orange tips on leaves or flower heads, Browns, blues most skippers rest deep into grasses, tussocks for shelter, dingy skipper in the open or knapweed plant. now you know where they go to in bad weather
