There have been butterflies on the buddleia - I grabbed a snap of this Red Admiral yesterday afternoon, when there were also Tortoiseshells and Peacocks feeding, and lots of bees.
We have had rain at last, steady rain that has soaked into the ground, though there are still big cracks in our clay soil.
The harvest has been brought in from many fields. On a walk down a local lane yesterday evening I took this picture. Cloud-spotters will appreciate the cloud.
