At last!! I have managed to capture a butterfly, a Gatekeeper I believe, fluttering in and around the thyme flowers. The first time I have seen this species in my garden, so I'm very pleased......thanks to Bikerbear for hosting :)
The deed is done!! I have submitted my formal application for the tenancy of the end terrace next door. A friend called round today for a cuppa and chat, looked the place over with me while the plumber was working there, and confirmed my feelings that it was the right decision. Now it's a waiting game until the closing date 12th August and longer probably, for the trustees to make their decision!! Fingers crossed.
It's been a beautiful sunny afternoon, but I have been thinking of those people in the Peak District who have been evacuated because of the risking of a dam breaking, due to excessive rain in that area. Hope the dam can be repaired swiftly and safely, and they are able to return to their homes very soon...........
Thank you for looking in and responding, very much appreciated :)
