#butterflycount. Picture taken from my living room window! #painted-lady. Sadly numbers in my garden this year have been significantly lower than last year. My buddleja is normally covered but sightings have been few and far between 😢
Thanks Jacqueline! I have had more speckled wood and common blue than usual but the absence of peacock, tortoiseshell and red admiral is worrying. Hopefully they’re just a bit late but all these lay eggs specifically on nettles and my concern is that the council have come and cut down/weed killed a whole generation 🤞 @awomanonabike
For me #summer is verbena coming into flower. It seems very early but these did overwinter so are maybe further on. Hopefully may attract some 🦋 which have been worryingly absent so far this year. Have a great weekend everyone!
Morning everyone! I love my #verbenabonariensis and am so pleased to have used it in my new front garden border. I love the height, the way it moves in the wind and the intense colour it brings, not to mention the close up views of bees, butterflies and other pollinators through my window! Have a great day everyone 💜💜💜
