First Butterfly Sighting of the Year

Due to being so busy yesterday with the hen housing preparations I did not get around to updating the blog until now. Yesterday the weather was very sunny and that can only mean one thing. Butterflies!

I am totally nuts about butterflies. I spend a lot of time reading about them, identifying them, learning about their prefered host plants and flight times. I think you get the picture. My name is Karen and I am a butterfly geek. There, I feel better.

Anyhoo, yesterday during all the glorious rays of sunshine, I spotted the first butterfly of the year, a Brimstone in flight. It was just so beautiful and  magical as it danced its butterfly dance around my head. I smiled and drifted off into a dream like state. …..

Then Rich shouted at me to pass him his drill. Urrghh.
