    Beautiful image. I’m also jealous that you’ve clearly experienced sunshine over the past week!

    • Reply Charly Dove January 5, 2014 at 8:08 am

      Thank you John. We had a teeny tiny bit of sunshine before it was replaced with downpours 🙂

    Lovely image-where’s that sun come from then?!

    • Reply Charly Dove January 5, 2014 at 8:46 am

      Had no sun at all here just rain although I can see some blue this morning! This was taken in Sussex last Sunday, it was a beautiful day 🙂

    Brilliant photo. I love butterflies ;D
    (Would you believe that I have one in my cupboard. He’s up near the ceiling and he’s been there since summer. I’m not sure if he’s alive or not. I’m hoping he is and that he’ll flutter into life once the temperature rises).

      Wow what an amazing story! They’re fabulous aren’t they 🙂
