After all the summer fun we have had receiving all little gnots’ adventure logs, it seems only right to finish the summer holidays with one last adventure before it’s back to school. In this one, missie gnot and her mum went butterfly and bee hunting in their garden to see if they could actually see them enjoying the flowers. They were not disappointed at all! In the picture above, there was actually more than one butterfly enjoying the flowers of the Buddleia plant. If you ever want to see butterflies, then you must plant a Buddleia in your garden. Butterflies and bees cannot resist their flowers! They are so easy to grow, they practically grow on their own without any hassle. In fact, next time you are stuck at the traffic lights on a main road, you may see some Buddleia plants growing on the verges, as they need no help at all to seed!
The sun was so bright when this picture was taken, that you really have to have a beady eye to see the bee in this picture. He’s camouflaged in the right, enjoying the offerings of a Lobelia plant. This is the best time of the year for the butterflies and the bees – certainly making the most of what’s still flowering before autumn and the frost set in. After a trek in the garden, then it was off to see the swans in Windsor, and how amazing that on this occasion three black swans were not camera shy! It’s rare to see three swans together as they tend to be in pairs…so this picture is super special!
It’s all back to school now, be it nursery or primary school. All little gnots are back in the swing of things and we wish you all a wonderful start!!!!
