So as I have said two of my interests are food and nature. Today I went to my local market and picked up the most amazingly tasty lamb samosa; but what to do whilst it was gently warming in the oven?….I decided to spend the time completing the short 15 minute Big Butterfly Count 2015 (butterfly-conversation.org) What a lovely and mutually beneficial way to spend the time. I spotted over 23 butterflies of eight different species ( including holly blue which was areal treat). So if you have a spare fifteen minutes it was really lovely to wander my Kent garden; ignore the weeds and enjoy watching all the visitors and insects who benefit from my work. And now I can enjoy the samosa knowing that the heating time wasn’t wasted.
