    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Cathy 🙂💜 We’ve still a few late flowers in bloom and the butterflies seem so happy now the warm weather has returned 🌞🦋 Wishing you a wonderful rest of the day and much love from our house to yours 🤗💖🐕 xxx


    1. Thank you dear Laurie, we’ve seen a lot more butterflies than in previous years here, including peacock and painted ladies. With changing temperatures they’ve come further north – maybe they’ll visit Maine too in future years 🙂💖🦋 xxx
