Lovely to see two Speckled Wood Butterflies in Crafty Green Boyfriend's Mum's garden when we popped in around lunchtime
These are lovely butterflies to see, not a species you would really expect to see in a garden, even a garden with several trees. Crafty Green Boyfriend's Mum doesn't use any pesticides or herbicides and normally her garden is a haven for insects of all sorts. This year, however, there are far fewer insects here than we would expect for the time of year, a phenomenon that is being noticed across the country.
The rhododendrons in the garden are also looking lovely
