Oh, Richard, and it is too wet to get out in my garden today to see it all. Last year I had hordes of them in April but then we had that lovely weather, in fact a five week drought. I have seen orange tips and speckled woods in the last few weeks but no blues as yet. My garden has all the shrubs you mention, in fact loads of holly and dogwood and a solitary spindle brought by the birds, four pyracanthas and a large snowberry bush, so it is holly blue heaven.
