Buddleia, Carn Brea Castle and Baby Snails

24 Jul

The rain stopped and we went out round the back along a short section of The Flat Lode Trail. The Buddleia is now blooming though we didn’t see any butterflies which is quite unusual as it has the nickname Butterfly Bush. The Gorse and the Heather are in bright bloom too.

From the top of the hill we could see Carn Brea castle in the distance and realised that we could see sky right through the window!DSCN3322

On the metal plate of a gate, the lovely Mr S spotted some tiny snails, barely 2 cms across. You can see that they are hardly the size of the rust spots.DSCN3334

    Gorse and heather. Oh, my. We need to venture from Arizona soon to places where these grow together.

    Love that mix of gorse and heather 🙂 Peacock butterflies only just emerging around our way and the red admirals have been late too! You should start seeing some activity on the buddleia soon. Are you taking part in the Big Butterfly Count for Butterfly Conservation UK this year?
