A garden first........................................................... a lovely Peacock butterfly

I had a lovely visitor to the garden this weekend...  a beautiful Peacock butterfly.

The image above was captured last summer during a visit to a local stately home.



They are quite a common butterfly to see... just not in my garden!
Luckily I was videoing the bees in my garden... (scroll down to view my last post)
My garden has had some really colourful visitors this year... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more.

Buddleias are what you need for peacocks, red admirals and painted ladies
