The weather was delightfully warm yesterday and around 6pm we were sitting next to the house supping tea, when we realised there were loads of butterflies warming themselves on our house wall in the early evening sunshine. It was such a beautiful treat to watch them flit and rest like little painted decorations. They were mostly peacock butterflies.
They remind me of a dear friend who used to love to visit and see the butterflies on our buddlia. I painted her this necklace one year.
