Bee Lavender

bee lilacA few moments ago I was writing a few words, when suddenly at each keystroke appeared a cerulean dot; and then when I moved the mouse around in frustration, great sweeps of thick blue lines covered the page.  Computers are so weird, I have no idea what happened.  My musings on Trimontium, clocks going back, the flare of the setting sun, pictures of a giraffe, printing schedules, have disappeared into the ether. So I shall emulate the bee and buzz off.

Where Have All the Butterflies Gone?

DSCF3768

Went up Nun’s Walk today, high above River Tweed, to see if there were any butterflies on the masses of buddleias growing there, and apart from one cabbage white, nada… this photograph was taken a year or so ago when there were peacocks, red admirals, tortoishells, painted ladies, not in profusion, but still enough to be noticeable.  But this July the buddleias are deserted, apart from some bees. I remember twenty years back the buddleia in the garden being totally covered with butterflies – this was in the town, too. What has happened this year, and what does it portend for next spring and summer?
