butterflies and bees

Yesterday, two white butterflies hatched. One from near the window the other in the dustbin of weeds. At the end of last year some nastursiums seeded and grew in the bin and large white butterflies laid thier eggs on them. The bin has not been emptied since.

While we played a board game on the porch, a peacock butterfly sunned itself on the path. A speckled wood butterfly, queen red-tailed bumble bee joined buff tailed and hoverflies sunning themselves on the wall in late evening sun.

Those bees certainly like your yellow wall! Lovely to see the white butterflies (even if there caterpillars do eat everything in sight!) at least it's a sign of spring. Love red tailed bees. That red is such a stunning colour. Jane
