Dull Sunday in Ireland

It hasn’t been much of a Summer in the North of Ireland.  We have been promised a heatwave for August… it isn’t here yet!!  But, the last of my poppies have bloomed, I am sorry to see the end of them as I just love them, especially when the bees make a visit 🙂  and of course the seed heads look great.

The buddleia is starting to bloom, and that means butterflies….. allegedly….. I hope they arrive soon.  I have been keeping some nettle plants in the garden as I believe the caterpillars enjoy them.
