Absolutely beautiful set, and I'm intrigued by V4, I didn't realise they faded like that. Turning grey with age - a bit like my hair...

The interior blue is pristine! Well seen and descriptive images made!

As to the Cabbage one, yes, and we have a new cluster of fritillaries coming off the fields as the farmer cut the har--meaning all their alternative feeding spots are now in large hay rolls!
