Painted Lady Butterfly

There were lots and lots of painted lady butterflies flying around when I went for a walk yesterday.  Perhaps the rain hatched them out.  I didn't have my camera with me, but later at home I saw one on the phlox.  It also enjoyed sipping from a hydrangea.

Our daughter, her husband and their two little boys are coming  to stay for a few days, so I'll be busy until the dust settles.


  1. we had a huge influx of these butterflies about two years ago but I've not spotted any so far this year - apart from on your blog!

  2. Okay, I love the butterfly but that PHLOX is amazing!!!!!!
