HA - you didn't get an award for spelling though.

It's Buddleia you muppet

*snorts into his Jack Denials*

You managed to get Agapanthus right though - perhaps you should limit your 'Trigger-time'.....

Agapanthus, lovely. (must de-head mine from last summer before spring gets here)

Thanks for getting a new digital camera so we can enjoy the prime from Dad's garden too.

Huggles to both of you

Very nice, all of them. I've never seen that type of butterfly, either. Must be European...

I love to take photos of cloud formations. Good work, Dad!
