We might be heading into autumn but summer isn’t ready to let go just yet! The sun is shining and the butterflies are loving the warmth and making the most of the flowering garden.
The butterflies seem to be most attracted to the Echinacea, Erysimum and Buddleia at the moment. The coneflowers (Echinacea) are a particular favourite of mine with their variety of vivid colours.
The most common type of butterfly in the back garden is the Tortoiseshell, although the Small White butterflies now seem to be competing for that particular title. This past week, I’ve also spotted a Gatekeeper and a Peacock butterfly, but the Peacock butterfly didn’t hang around for long and I didn’t manage to get a photo.
Autumn will soon be taking over and I’ll miss the lively summer life of the garden.
