Hello petal

Cold and wet weather left me with an empty trap on Monday night but a buggy run with the granddaughter in London today was a little more profitable.

It was still cold but the sunshine brought out this Small White, which sends my 2016 butterfly tally creeping up to four species.

Can you spot the butterfly?
The butterfly was like a larger version of the cherry and apple blossom petals which are gently falling both in London and here at home.  It found a cosy spot to nectar in a bed of mixed Spring flowers - picture just above - especially anchusa and deadnettle. London's gardens are small but rich in plants and wildlife.
