I have a small north-facing garden that I try to cram in as many tubs, pots, and hanging baskets as possible, along with the limited borders I have. Today…17th July, an extremely warm start…10:30 a.m. it was 22 Celsius. (71 Fahrenheit)! Mentioned a few times throughout the day to my other half just how many butterflies are in the garden today.
All-day long right up until dusk. My buddleia was not particularly spectacular this time…and then I sat and thought, Dad ! He passed away 4 years ago and today would have been his birthday.
