Hunstanton HLG 13-7-20


Hello Ducklings,

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and managed to get out into the sunshine.

As it was so warm there was a lot of insect activity in my garden especially around the ¬†Buddleia Tree. You may have heard it called the Butterfly Bush. It’s purple flowers are very good at attracting butterflies and bees.

The Buddleia Tree has purple trumpet shaped flowers.

The purple colour of the flowers attracts the bees. Bees like the colour purple.

The trumpet shape of the flowers means the bush attracts insects with tongues long enough to reach right inside the flower.

Look closely at these photos. Can you see the long tongue of the butterfly reaching right down into the trumpets of the flowers?
