I was out in the garden hanging out the laundry when something caught my eye.
A beautiful butterfly. I rushed indoors to get my camera but not really expecting it to be there when I returned.
Luck was on my side. It wasn't going anywhere fast.
I zoomed in.
I'm no expert but I knew it was not a butterfly, but a moth.
What kind, I do not know. I am relying on somebody being able to solve this mystery.
While I had the camera in my hand, I decided to snap any flora that was in flower.
The California Poppy always does well in my garden and sometimes grows so prolifically that it could almost be classed as a weed. It does have a pretty flower though.
This little flower is shyly peeping out from behind some ferns. I thought I had lost all the plants in my garden.
It is the bi-ennial Lychnis Coronaria, with it's silver leaves and carmine flowers. Always one of my favourites, so I am extremely pleased to see it back in my garden.
My two unnamed Clematis are really doing well this year.
I think in our garden anyway, it has to be the plant of the year. (So far.)
I am now looking forward to hearing what kind of moth visited my garden?
