I dont know about washing it, but her car with the top down will dry it well enough!!

Help - should I chop down the tree?

Well if its any consolation, the people opposite my mums planted a double flowered pink cherry about 1960. It finally got chopped down about 10 years ago when the couple that owned the house all that time died. It was about 12 feet from the front of the house. They had the old style foundations and it never bothered them. Proper concrete pipe drains shouldn't be bothered either.

 Not a butterfly but next best thing. I'd not seen one of these before.

Another one for the "new bugs this year" list.

What sort of tree is it?

 How far from the house. or drain

New build houses are usually on concrete rafts and the roots wont affect it.

I think I'll put them in bigger pots, and when I pull out the angelicas which I have flowered, they can go in their space in the wildflower/wildlife meadow/prairie bit.

The deep polystyrene fish boxes that salmon get delivered to the supermarkets make an ad hoc cold frame with a sheet of glass or plastic over.

 The chemist type ones are good for keeping a couple of cans cold in the car, or getting ice lollies home from the supermarket.

We had a lot of butterflies early on in the year. I assume they laid eggs and the caterpillars are growing. Some will pupate into butterflies later on this year,others will overwinter as a chrysalis.

Help to ID this?

I cant see any eggs. Is it a poppy. It looks like something has nibbled and the poppy has exuded sap which has then gone black. I would leave them alone. If they've finished flowering you could remove them.
