The Answer to the Riddle…

In my last post I asked you to identify this creature, which I saw feeding on the catkins of a Willow last week:

The correct answer was…

…a Peacock Butterfly!

I watched it for some time as it moved from catkin…

…to catkin.

Then it flew to the ground at my feet and perched on an old oak leaf in the grass, sunning itself for a while before flying away again.

Congratulations (and a signed copy of Tilly) go to Peapod Pixie, who was first to correctly identify it!

An Early Easter-Puzzle…

We’re in the middle of the Celtic Willow-Month and soon I’ll be writing a post about Willow Tree Magic, but ahead of that here’s a teaser for you: can you tell me what is feeding on the pollen of this Goat Willow?

The first person to give me the correct answer will receive a free signed copy of Watchers, Book One of the Tilly Greenway and the Secrets of the Ancient Keys series.

You can let me know via Facebook, or via the comments section here. Get your answers in soon and your prize should reach you in time for Easter. Good luck!
