Bees and butterflies

I have spent a productive weekend gardening 🙂

Now ..  with glass of wine in hand I shall share some pics taken when I was putting all the garden paraphernalia away this evening …

These little butterflies are regular visitors to the lavender –

They usually sit with their wings closed but I spotted this one …. showing off his beautiful colours

  1. Wow, such gorgeous pictures. I am a bit envious since I won’t out in my garden for at least another month (it’s covered in snow!) and I won’t see any lavender here in New Jersey until June or July.
