Evenin' Folks

Just found these two chillin' on me Hostas.

Been seeing a lot of Butterflies these past few weeks, although they don't often stop in my patio (clearly don't have anything to meet their delectation).

So that's Crickets, Grasshoppers, and Butterflies now. Not bad for a London patio (although I probably live in the greenest part of the city...)

Any ideas? Yellow Clouded Pieridae? Not particularly spectacular (although I haven't been able to spot their outer wings as yet) but nice to see them stop by no less.

    Small cabbage whites, I think.

    Could be!

    Hope to see more of them and perhaps next spring/summer have a better variety for them to enjoy.

    Try cabbages,the ones on my allotment are covered with these little pests but they are so pretty I can't really get annoyed I just won't grow cabbage next year!
