Summer is here!!

Summer is here!!

A Painted Lady butterfly. These guys migrate northwards from Spain and arrived last week here. They move forward in a swarm up the UK. Last year I did not see any here and the summer was terrible. Last week there were droves here and I hope this is a harbinger of a good summer!
