Birds, Blooms, Butterflies and Halloween Cupcakes.

Americo surprised me with these four cupcakes he bought for our tea today.



The spider cupcakes are the ones I have chosen, cos, the one with the bulging eyes looks so cute, and the other has lost an eye.:))
 

Butterflies sometimes sunbathe on the hosepipe

I have forgotten the name of this bird. Photo taken in the Biological Park.

This Long-tailed tit must have put it's beak inside a spiders nest. Photo taken through the lounge window.

ps, new hope, pa. is a very pet friendly place. almost all of the shops have those water bowls for dogs and they are all maintained and fresh. a lot of the shops allow dogs inside!!! enjoy your yummy treat!!!

Personally, I am not one to "celebrate" Halloween, if that is the right word to describe it but the cakes looked nice. Still very mild here but the butterflies have long since gone though I still have some roses blooming. Some of the colours of the flowers in your garden are amazing. So vivid.

ooh I just love those brilliant spooky halloween cakes and all of those gorgeous butterflies and birds. Lovely to see some beautiful flowers.
Have a wonderful week :)

I love the butterflies. The cupcakes are cute and I'm not normally a spider fan.

Forest Dream Weaver said...

Beautiful images, as always.....I especially like the intense blue sky....looks like summer is still with you! The cup cakes are very creative but I know some people who would run a mile from these spiders!
Have a great week!

Hetty said...

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. Lucky you to be able to take photos of butterflies like the ones you showed. I can only see them on holidays! They are also very quick, so deep respect! Groetjes Hetty

Chris Rohrer said...

Your post is fell of color! Looks wonderful. The cupcakes are really cute. I am not so good in that area:) As always, love the birds you share. But your butterflies are stunners! Hope your week is a good one. Hugs from Tucson!

Phil Slade said...

How appropriate. You have spider cupcakes for a spider and insect aficionado. I do like the swallowtail butterfly picture. It's spot on.

Thanks for your response to my blog post. It was a spoof in some ways as well as making a point about the time and energy spent in the UK in chasing rare birds.

Oh those cupcakes do look good!

Love all your photo's here, the butterflies and flowers with their pretty colours and the birds too. A wonderful collection.

All the best Jan

your long tailed tit seems a lot different from ours. :) Love the butterflies.

Nick Morgan said...

What lovely bright, sunny pictures. Amazing that the butterflies are attracted to the hose pipe like that. Despite frosts the last two mornings I still received reports of Red Admirals being seen here today.

mick said...

Great photos and the butterflies are especially beautiful.

David Gascoigne said...

The bird you are unable to identify is in fact a variant of the Common Pigeon, aka Rock Dove, aka Feral Pigeon. This species has been so selectively bred by humans that it comes in dazzling array of forms, with variants raised to accentuate different characteristics, deemed by one or another pigeon fancier to be desirable. That is how we get pouters, fantails etc. I am glad to hear that the salamander boards piqued your interest and that you are going to experiment with some yourself. Next step is sanke boards!

Beautiful series .... every perfect bird and butterfly and lovely flowers. And the cupcakes look amazing.

weekend-windup said...

I love to eat the cup cakes! They look so cute! They tempt me to eat it! Beautiful and colorful butterflies:)

Tom said...

Such a lovely butterfly collection.

Richard Pegler said...

Your garden flowers are gorgeous, Sonjia. I don't usually eat cupcakes, but I could be tempted by those! What I am really envious of, however, are your fabulous hosepipe butterflies - any one of those three would cause me great excitement.

I really appreciated your return visit. Thank you for telling me about the pigeon. I don't think I'll be putting any snake boards down!!!
