Whilst removing Ivy in one of my customers gardens in Harpenden, a butterfly emerged, I quickly followed it and took several photos. I was so delighted that I remembered that people sent in photo's regarding things they saw, as this was very special I wanted to share it with people & I was very surprised to receive an email saying it will be appearing in the next issue

We need to encourage more butterfly's and bees into our gardens, I always try and plant plants and shrubs throughout the season to help our birds, bees and butterfly's........



 Thanks for sharing.

wow....almost as good as your profile pic lol



A perfect example of why people shouldn't remove ivy

thanks everyone, I am glad you like it, thanks Jenny it was a fancy dress party!

Fleurisa, I wouldn't normally remove ivy for precisely that reason, however when the ivy in question was causing damage on a customers property, a small section had to be removed, however 80% is still there. 


A few minutes ago I went into the garage for some onions, when I came out I had a peacock butterfly on my apron, I popped him/her back in a quiet corner before he woke up in the warmth of the kitchen.   Lovely to see it
