Orange Sulphur

Orange Sulphur
Colias eurytheme 1 --2 inches Aka Alfalfa Butterfly

This Orange Sulphur turned up today--captured on the purple monarda !

Re: Custard Shop--- They sell several varieties of soft ice cream---usually in a cone, sometimes in a dish-- I will make some images next time we go to Carlisle-- a drive of 20 miles-- and post --and I am curious --what would a custard shop or stand be called where you live?

Visiting down island in Bowser today. An Old man's Birthday event. Waited over an hour for a big yellow BF and he never settled once. Struck out! Well not totally. This yeellow of yours is a wecome consolation. There will be a next time. Lovely with those odd purple blooms. TG

"what would a custard shop or stand be called where you live?"
'Unusual' probably, quickly followed by a For Sale sign.
Our nearest shop is a 12 mile round trip and there is no bus or pub.
As there are only 30 dwellings in a 3km radius, there probably wouldn't be support for a custard shop.

Love the custard coloured bug today, Jenn.

Delightful combination of butterfly and flower Jenn.
Ice Cream Parlours would be our nearest equivalent - we still have these in seaside towns
such as Largs in Ayrshire. Never heard of custard shop though!

Lovely image Jenn.
I suppose Ice cream Parlour or the dreaded Ice cream van is our nearest to a custard shop!
Beautiful Jenn.
