Blue Monday: Happy Birthday Blues

I was so happy that the storms blew through over the night and this morning, enabling a small group of my family and friends to join me for a birthday celebration at RHS Wisley Gardens! It was a really lovely day and I managed to process a few of the fabulous blues that we saw whilst wandering around the gardens.

Blue Monday: Clipper Blue-Subspecies

Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor has taken over hosting Blue Monday in Sally’s memory and we’re all still sharing happy blue images in her honour. Today I’m posting the last of the blue butterflies from the Butterflies in The Glasshouse event at RHS Gardens Wisley. This is a Clipper Blue-Subspecies and I will admit to having worked on this beautiful creature in Photoshop to fix some bad tears in those lovely wings! It was more damaged than I’d realised upon seeing it in the Glasshouse. The camera may tell the truth but the eye only sees the beauty ­čÖé
