Many thanks everyone!! The Sedums are coming into their own now in the North East, and attracting these gorgeous butterflies, we've had such a wonderful golden day here, and first thing, the Tour of Britain coming through the village......can't get much better than that!.....:o)

have we any one that can tell us the name of this lovly butterfly ' it is not as common as we think have another look at it ,the coluring is common but look at the shape of the wings it is going towards a swolotail.

12 Sep, 2009

12 Sep, 2009

 

Must say Jane you really been excelling yourself with these lovely wildlife photos recently ..another beauty our sedums attracting speckled wood butterflies .

12 Sep, 2009

 

Cliffo.....they seem to be more late summer up here..........didn't realize it was a male one San......there was another sunbathing itself, maybe they were a couple......:o) Yes the cycle race, started at Scunthorpe near us....:o)
Aw thanks Bb.....have managed to sort out the zoom and trim on the camera at long last...Lol! San had been trying to tell me how to do it on the computer, but I couldn't seem to do it somehow.......:o(

13 Sep, 2009

 

aww how sweet janey, out together for a little end of summer sun lol
doesnt matter about doing it on comp janey you do a good job on your camera :o))

13 Sep, 2009

 

He..he.....thanks San...:o) What sort of day have you in Blackpool? Cloudy and chilly this morning here, hopefully it'll warm up a bit....:o)

13 Sep, 2009

 

hi janey its misty, has been last couple of days, a bit damp but its turned out really sunny mid morning, so looks like another nice day, im going to go get a few winter plants as im not to bad this morning, so do it while im ok :o) what you going to do janey

13 Sep, 2009

 

Hi San......I must've clicked out before I got your message.....sorry.....well, I had some plans to drive over to my Mums but can't believe I've pulled my back, .....have been crawling around on my hands and knees, so shall stay put today....:o(. Are you not too well San? Hope you got your plants, its difficult to know what to buy isn't it.........I have emptied quite a few tubs the other day, but don't know what to plant apart from pansies................

13 Sep, 2009

 

oh poor you janey i do hope you soon get back to normal, im doing ok got to have gallbladder out so in pain most days now, so limit what i do, but i went out and got some plants to go near the deck in my bad area if you remember, its stones so got rockery plants and some sedum after seeing yours, so pretty :o) take care janey

13 Sep, 2009

 

Oh...I'm sorry to hear that San.....that can be very painful....:o( Ian had his out a long while ago now and our daughter had keyhole surgery when she was only about 23, has been fine on that score ever since though, hope you get it sorted soon....:o). The sedums are great for butterflies, there is a bright red one, I'm looking for, for next year. If your stoney area gets the sun, those Lampranthus would be good too, and would trail over the stones.....:o).

13 Sep, 2009

 

your daughter was younge to have that janey, poor thing, i got the sedum today and think its red and lots of buds to, i will look for lampranthus to, cheers :o) while i was in the nursery today was lots of red admirals fluttering about and other butterflys to, wish i had took my camera

13 Sep, 2009

 

Yes she was San......I wondered if it was my cooking!...no seriously it seems to be in the family, Ian's Mum has had the same thing too. Kat, our daughter was always such a healthy eater and would only drink water when she was small and Ian was vegetarian for 20years............. Love the Red Admirals they seem so friendly...:o)

13 Sep, 2009

 

yes ive read up on gallbladder and it says its normally meat eaters that have probs not vegitarians,, but even dairy products arent good either, i think im quite a healthy eater, i do eat meat but more fish and chicken, love veg and salads to, but it can be for women due to the pill or menaporsal, even having kids, so we suffer more than men with it, more pain they say :o(

13 Sep, 2009

 

Wow, fantastic close-up Janey :)

14 Sep, 2009

 

Nice! My little camera is sitting in the background sulking. {chuckle}
