Prepare for take-off

No shortage of bees and butterflies on Eupatorium Purpureum ‘Gateway’at Calley Gardens near Castle Douglas last week. I can’t say I have noticed this plant before and it was only because it was smothered in butterflies (well, 20 or 30) and bees (50 to 100) that it attracted me. Before you dash out and buy one be warned – this is not a window-box plant. What you don’t see in my photo is the eight-or-so feet of plant the red admiral is perched on. I was holding the camera high above my head.
