Where have all the Butterflies gone???

I was thinking today (which can be very dangerous)........................ where have all the butterflies gone?  I absolutely adore butterflys, but have hardly seen any this year.   I suppose it has something to do with the type of weather that we are having, in not so sunny England!  Anyway, it is not summer without butterflys.  A summer without any butterflys makes me feel depressed.  Therefore,  this afternoon I went around my house with Millicent Mavis in tow in search of butterflies.  If anyone feels the same as I do, then here are some pictures of butterflies around my home to hopefully cheer us up!!  There is a crafty link to this, as some of which you will see are some of my makes.
