They have some wonderful names for the butterfly here in Scotland: in the North East they are called 'Butterflee' or 'Buttery' , whilst elsewhere a chrysalis is a 'Tammie-Nid-Nod' or a 'Tammie-noddie-heid' (heid meaning head), isn't that just lovely!
The many photographs i have taken of my garden visitors have inspired me to include butterflies in a new creation! So I have designed my 'Colour your own Butterfly Bunting kits'! The kit contains 12 butterflies and 10 flowers for you to colour, all in assorted sizes, enough to make 1.5 meters of bunting and you can choose from a selection of 4 colours of organza ribbon to thread them on to.
I had great fun choosing my colours had a very relaxing afternoon filling them in! I love that the collective noun for butterflies is a' Kaleidoscope', I think it perfectly suits this riot of colour.
I would love you to send me photographs of your finished bunting, so that I can share them here, it will be fascinating to see how different they all turn out! Each one will be quite unique I'm sure x
and last but not least!
A GIVE AWAY!
I enjoyed making my bunting so much that I thought I would give away a Butterfly Bunting kit!
So if you would like a chance to win a bunting kit just leave a message below and tell me what your favourite colour is and why! The winner will be picked from the hat on Monday 17th July.
