A memorable image of 2003:

Painted Lady on Escallonia

Painted Lady on Escallonia, 17 June 2003


There was an Escallonia in the far corner of the garden when I moved here in 2000. I took some cuttings which have grown very fast. These are planted along the back fence where a Painted Lady butterfly stopped to feed on the flowers.
