I noticed an orange tip today. Not spectacular, but I haven't seen one in years...

Interesting little bugs I've seen the last couple of summers are hummingbird hawkmoths, paying close attention to the buddleia. Used to be that they only visited the southern areas of the UK and Ireland. Global warming or not, I hope they turn up again this year.
