    Went to a farmhouse restaurant up in the Jura mountains this evening and there was a purple buddleia full of them. Will post a picture tomorrow.

    it is amazing 4th Panda, it likes ceratostigma which is outside the french doors and gets sun at dinner time so we can sit and watch the visitors

    Last week there were a lot of moths on the buddleja at dusk. (no idea what sort). tonight, warmer weather, not one.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    We've got a lot of Silver Y's, 24 hours a day. they flutter around buddleia and all their other favourites

    At work my eyes have been glued to the buddliea watching out for the Hummingbird Hawk Moths, but no luck, and the buddliea is nearly over now image

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !
