Thistles and the cabbage white.

Most gardeners would cringe at this photograph, the dreaded thistle and the cabbage white. I have an area of the garden where anything goes and I love it. The soft lilac flower and the pure white of the butterfly is such a beautiful combination. I can remeber last summer sitting on the bench that is near the meadow and I was totally entranced by what was going on. It was a hot day (one of the few we had last year) and the insect life in that small area was incredible.
By the way have noticed in one area of the garden the snowdrops have just come through. They are going to be late this year, still better late than never.
