It's that time of year

when the caterpillars arrive. They are cinnabar moth and we have them every year. Although I have never seen such small ones. I rescued one from the washing and when i put him back on the plant found loads
They really  seem to like this one plant which is really a weed. I shall look forward to seeing them grow bigger.

The buddleia flowers are finally out
too many plants this year have been all greenery and no flowers, probable due to the amount of rain we had  in the early summer. All we need now are some butterflies.

I have finished a little pullover my my daughter's nephew
I have spent far too long watching the Olympics but I knit as I watch so I don't feel too guilty and Biddle should soon have a new jumper to add to his collection.

Buddleias are beautiful. We had two but after a very cold winter they didn't come back and for some reason I haven't seen any this year at the garden center to replace them.
