Yesterday was Springtime.
I know this because a butterfly told me.
It was the first butterfly we’ve seen in the garden this year.
The battered condition of this Small Tortoiseshell is a testament to its having survived the winter.
I suspect that today it has gone back into whatever warm place it likes to call home.
We went into Preston for lunch and, as it was such a nice day, we parked down by the river and walked up through Miller and Avenham Parks into town.
Warm enough to sit in the sun:
But not warm enough for me to discard winter woollens just yet.
(Current weather here right now is: wind, heavy rain, chilly, i.e. WINTER)
I know that a lot of us bloggers in the northern hemisphere are awaiting springtime.
Her blog promises:
Fab photos, witty asides and light hearted humour….
If you enjoy wildlife, blue skies and general joie de vivre, you won’t be disappointed.
