I'm not surprised the Peacocks are loving the Buddleia as it's huge this year...2 years after Colin planted it and is giving off such a strong sweet cloying scent.

And I thought the Painted Ladies that were around earlier in the year had all disappeared until I spotted this on the drive-way, sheltering from the wind
There are also several Red Admirals about but I haven't been able to get them to sit still yet. They love to feed on fallen plums so maybe I'll get a photo later in the year.
Much wandering around and standing very still waiting to get these photos but I'm pleased it paid off in the end.
