A World Without Butterflies and Bees…

Buddleia are in full, heavy, nectar perfumed bloom all over the gardens at Bealtaine Cottage. This is one just opposite the front door. The purple coloured blossoms droop expectantly, waiting for the seasonal Butterflies, but there are none… What has happened is the fault of humankind, weather, pesticides, corporate greed and ecocide happening all around me. If the Butterflies had to rely on the Bealtaine gardens alone, then the world is mad. I fear, in this area, they do. Flowers like these Perlagoniums hold nothing for Bees or Butterflies. Colourful they are and I love the vibrancy and traditional look…
