Butterflies Bees and Buggs — I set out to create a bee and butterfly friendly habitat but didn’t reckon on it attracting bugs.
Everywhere I look in the garden there are bees —
In twos and threes —
or just singles —
they are a-buzzing —
From the lofty sunflowers —
to the lowly miniature dahlias they are a welcome sight —
Even the solitary butterfly on the buddleia enjoyed it’s time in the sun —
till it was head-butted by a high-speed wasp and took off for pastures new.
Yes – it’s tough life for a butterfly out there. If it’s not killer wasps it’s other kinds of bugs they have to look out for —
Including yours truly dressed up for Saturday’s Town Parade —
You should know me by now – I just had to get another day out of my Captain Sunflower suit before I chucked it in the wash 🙂
