Lovely sunny morning today. The garden is still busy with butterflies. Loads of peacocks about. Managed to get two in the above photo; both using our garden table as a landing strip.
The above photo shows Ann, and friend Leslie, who had supper with us on Monday, then, when we'd cleared, she joined us in a game of scrabble. Warned us she was very out of practice, but put up a pretty good game none the less. Came second. The photo is shown particularly for the information of the gentleman in Australia.
The peacock s are brazen creatures (sorry Rog) who have no scruples about being photographed (as per top picture). We also have the very occasional small tortoiseshell butterfly who are (very properly), far more modest about being photographed. However, finally managed to get a snapshot of one, see above.
Must push off now. Planning to meet friends for lunch, and have just been reminded of the time. More later perhaps.
