Red Hot Pokers

Bees just Love these

These flowers brought lots of much-needed Bees into the garden. The weather being very wet , so a chance of Sunshine out they came. Butterfly bush brought Peacock and white butterfly’s. In fact this year they all came out at the same time and the right time. Past summers have brought them out earlier and have died out before the Butterfly’s managed to get out.

The Red hot pokers have been only but a few over the past years. So maybe all that rain they seem to have flourished , seven in all. Although the wind has bent them over a little , they indeed look like pretty flamingoes.

So there just outside my kitchen window , it was such a joy to see. Many Pretty Butterfly’s and Bees on these lovely much-needed flowers.  Have a Good Weekend and may the sunshine on your garden. Bye for Now

      Hello Sue thank you for coming over, I bet you are excited about your holiday. I do hope you have a relaxing and happy time. It’s a shame the Buddliea comes and go so quickly. It was wonderful to see all the butterfly’s and bees yesterday, drizzle today though.
      Enjoy your Break
      Hugs Sheila hope to catch up with you on your return, taking your camera I hope.

Ive not had one like this in many a year. so it took me by surprise and knocked me back a bit.. But pleased to feel fit enough to concentrate on my blog again..
