Summer in all its glory

This 'weed' is actually quite pretty growing wild as it does in the woods. We're not used to the sun in the UK but we have been enjoying the hottest temperatures for several weeks now. The woods are filled with flowers but far fewer butterflies than previous years. That seems very strange given that we have had much less rain. This photo was taken in a spot in the woods where thousands of butterflies can usually be found in the summer. There were hardly any as I wandered around with the hound late this evening.  (The sun sets around 9.45pm).
