Meet Miss Holly Blue Butterfly......



This little beauty delighted us last weekend...

I had to look up her name...but she was definitely BLUE...so that made it a lot easier!

She seemed to love my White Yarrow...which has been spreading very nicely over the past few years...

When she flitted about...the BLUE became more obvious...

Love her little black & white striped stockings!!

Thanks Holly Blue Butterfly....you are beautiful! 

Thought you all might enjoy her, as much as we did! 

                                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are off to the cottage...

YAY!!

Back on Saturday...for a sleepover with Miss V...

See you all then...

enjoy the rest of the week....


                                       Cheers!  :o)

  5. Great shots of Holly Blue Flutterby , as we used to call them.
    Nice lot of detail.
    They were actually called that in England originally. I think it is a better name.
    Enjoy your stay at the cottage - shame you can't beam yourselves back and forth like they do in Star Trek . . . lol

    2. Hi Jane . . . I'm Eddie!
      I see you say Flutterby as well which is marvelous and very accurate . . . and I hear you are Brit and are very witty . . . such an extremely rare combination so I just had to say hello.

      I see you have two blogs and I will make a deal with you. I will visit both your blogs if you will visit mine and help yourself to a cup of tea. Deal? Naturally I am a Brit too. . . . :)
