Hi all. I think my first post on this site was ref bees and I commented that there was around here at least a larger number than usual of them about this year. More good news - I am happy to say that the same applies to Butterflies which I have not for a long long time seen so many. All the flowers in the garden attract them but as stated hitherto I am mostly interested in foliage and the flowers are treated as a bonus - hence though I have a goodly variety I have not that number of what I suppose could be called spectacular. The usual annual "bests" for the butterflies are the Sedums (spectabile in particular) but above all the Buddleas (sp). I have four bushes of these, three were competing with and under mature trees and in spite of their size I have moved one over "out of range". Will do the others in due course but all will know that moving large bushes is a job and the plants most certainly in my experience "sulk" for a couple of seasons after - assuming that is if all goes well. Best one which was away from the trees is all of 7-8 feet tall and at least 6 ft in diameter. It has masses of flowers all ready out and many more to come and is alive with Butterflies - Bees and other insects. I like my cameras and have been out taking some close ups of the action. Will sort and send just a few though theres not much to say about it all.
