  1. I saw a lovely orange Butterfly yesterday but it flew off before I could get my camera. I have just looked at your ' Our growing techniques ' Section which is brilliant. Take care now. Marion

  4. Beautiful pictures Sue. There is a bird nest smack in the middle of one of our gooseberry bushes. I hope the berries will still be OK by the time the chicks fly off as I do not want to disturb them.

  6. Sue, you do get the most fabulous photographs - I especially love that last one, the open beak waiting to be fed reminds me of my (very slim) teenage son!

  7. It always amazes me when I see the parent birds running themselves ragged to feed offspirng that are practically the same size as they are!!

  8. Butterfly's feathers look hairy, they look like winter outfit. Maybe the butterfly should change them for lighter summer version ;)
