13 Jun, 2012

 

Well caught Pimpers! What a beauty it is with it's bright blue furry body...fantastic!

13 Jun, 2012

 

Oh, it might be the one I see in my garden then.
They are so pretty but on the move all the time, you are so clever getting this pic :-)

Put the Pics up N3tyy..It may be another butterfly I think.

Almost cuddly isn't he Janey?

13 Jun, 2012

 

There were a few of them Willi...they are a bit flighty though I was chasing them for a bit. Running about like a nutter really :))

13 Jun, 2012

 

He really is, you could think it's a soft toy one...lol! We usually have a pair of Holly blues flitting around the garden Pimpers, but only one of them this year and never on a cold grey day...:((

13 Jun, 2012

 

Stunning Pimm's - lovely to see. Thanks for the running about! There's something special about blue butterflies . . . we saw about a dozen Holly blues when we were in the Picos de Europa recently - apparently licking minerals from a muddy patch.

15 Jun, 2012

 

Well

15 Jun, 2012

 

I'm only getting started!!! Only 8pm here!!! WooHoo!!! :)))))
Wish I had thought to pick up some wine though :/

15 Jun, 2012

 

Sooooo impatient!

15 Jun, 2012

 

Dum dee dum....wish Gattina and Bloomer were awake...

15 Jun, 2012

 

And with the latest deafening silence.....I bid you good night, or good morning :)))

15 Jun, 2012

 

Bloomer is never fully awake after 5pm and Gattina is an hour forward. Her teeth are in a tumbler at the bedside..I will cop it in the morning but...I shall pretend I know nothing due to drink,

15 Jun, 2012

 

I HEARD THAT! My teeth are fully intact and firmly enough embedded in my jaws that I can deliver an incredibly painful bite, too. So watch it.
BTW, Pimp, it doesn't take drink to cloud your dodgy memory!

15 Jun, 2012

 

LOL...Morning, Lil dared me to do it, honest.

15 Jun, 2012

 

Humph! Love your butterfly, BTW.

15 Jun, 2012

 

I had nothing to do with it and she knows it!!
You sure do have strange nicknames for body parts Gattina ;)))

15 Jun, 2012

 

LOL!

15 Jun, 2012

 

wow.

15 Jun, 2012

 

Lol at this convo. sounds like my kind of night-wine and chatting on the internet at 2am-the best convo's. lol :o)

15 Jun, 2012

 

Same for me, LL, Unfortunately, at that hour, my brain detatches itself from my common-sense gene and goes careering round like a granny on speed, and I'm an hour ahead of most of you! My teeth do stay in though, whatever that awful Pimpernel says.

16 Jun, 2012

 

That's when I love you the most Gat ;)))

16 Jun, 2012

 

Thank you, Hun - glad someone does. :o)

16 Jun, 2012

 

Absolutely beautiful.....Butterfly and conversation.....

16 Jun, 2012

 

Glad you weren't offended HB :) These are the kind of times I have made my best friends on GoY....very late when they've loosened up :)))

16 Jun, 2012

 

haha! thats great! im the same gattina! ill look out for you next time lol, yeah im just like that in real life tho- need dutch courage to be round lots of people-but then sometimes too loosened up (not totally loose lol)...i need to find the balance :-)

17 Jun, 2012

 

'find the balance'........hmmmm, wonder why that resonates with me LL?? :)))

17 Jun, 2012

 

hehe! :-)
