Summer Butterfly Tag

Hi Everyone…  I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

It’s our town gala day today and it looks like it might just be a bit of a wash out… the Met Office have issued a Yellow Warning for rain today and I was hoping it would stay off long enough and not spoil the Gala Day procession and festivities… but half an hour ago the heavens opened, and I mean opened and this was the view outside my wee shed!  Great big huge raindrops.. and torrential!

I’m wondering if the gala day is cancelled now… will find out soon as hubby is just popping out in the car to drive our son to work.

Anyway.. enough about horrid weather and onto a lovely summery tag!
