We've not seen many this year Carole, not even on the Buddleja.

We have more than we had last year, but still not enough, none on the Buddleja at all!!

Not great is it. I saw one today...very fleeting.

If the buddleja is anything like ours was it flowered too early and the butterflies were not hatched to get out there onto the flowers. Seen some since the buddleja went over though, yesterday there was a newly hatched Red Admiral drying off in a patch of sunshine on the wall of the house. We have not had the amounts of butterflies we normally get but loads of bees early on in the summer and hoverflies too. So think it is just the strange weather that has spoiled the butterfly displays. The rain has been torrential when it has come and might have washed out the poor things. They will recover I am sure, it might take them a couple of years but hopefully they will be back.

I did see a absolutely beautiful one...huge and looked new, on the lawn today. I think you are right Mum, as we usually get a lot of butterflies here in September, but everything flowered early, and the buddleias definitely have. I do have my lovely 'Santana' flowering though, so that's good for the butterflies.
