Absent friends

At last a bit of sunshine and we've got butterflies. A few at least. In a good year the buddleia by the front door is covered with late summer butterflies, including red admirals, small tortoiseshells and commas. Today there were three red torties - just the three - but maybe the weather will hold and more will turn up soon.
The iceplants are just coming into flower and should be a magnet for butterflies too, but they're not working their magic either. That said, they have been buzzing with honey bees for most of the afternoon so they're not going to waste.
