Painted Lady

Has anyone noticed the sudden appearance of so many butterflies, just lately?

Certainly, at Powderham, yesterday, they were in abundance

and very much showing off their beauty.

I  managed to snap this beautiful Painted Lady

 as it rested, briefly.

It's always a pleasure to visit this lovely plant centre and it has to be my favourite

for the stunning displays and the quality of the plants.

I love it!

Naturally, whilst here, one has to visit the farm shop!

And the drive home is always a treat...past this lovely line of Poplars, 

about which I always remark

but never take a photo...until yesterday, that is.

But the Painted Lady was certainly the star of the day!
