Thanks Sheila, thanks and Hello Violeteyes ... :o)

Muddy, I didn't even do the Big Butterfly Count this year ... seemed pointless ... then I received an e-mail saying please do the count regardless of the lack of Butterflies ... slapped wrist for me then! ... :o)

Brilliant ,there's been such a shortage of butterflies in our garden this year despite there being so much colour to attract them

Karen, lucky escape then! ....... I know just what you mean, Amy, there do seem to be plenty of Cabbage Whites around and I know I should appreciate them, but they just don't have that impact ... lol! ....... Lulu, I was so lucky as usually by the time I've got the camera ready, the subject has flown away! ... :o)

Thankyou Dotty - when I went to the allotment earlier there were three female Holly Blue butterflies - beautiful with black edged wings - must be feeding on fruit and veg! .......

Must be the South Coast drawing them in! .......
