It’s been good to see lots of bees and butterflies on the plot flowers over the past couple of weeks. I think that it’s been the best year yet for butterflies both in terms of numbers seen and different types. Yesterday morning I stood and watched common whites, small skippers, gatekeepers and common blues on the candytuft Sparkles.
Bees certainly like the cosmos and teasels as seen here, the latter one sharing with a rather tatty butterfly.
There have also been some day flying moths around as well including this one on a sunflower Musicbox which I’m fairly sure is a Silver Y.
There was some rain during Friday night but the forecast for the coming week is continuing dry and warm, with temperatures thankfully dropping back to the low 20s F/70’s C during the week.
Have a good week!
