Brightness alert!

Hi everyone,

Its Thursday and it's time for a new As You Like It Challenge

But before I get the the challenge I wanted to show you some photo's
from yesterday in my garden, we were supposed to get lots of rain but in fact it mostly rained during the night and was a beautiful autumn day! hard to believe it's October with my favourite
Yellow Buddleia is its second bloom the butterflies are loving it too! there were at least
17 butterflies on it at once 

Just thought I would take one of the sky too!

Not sure what this one is called but its looking great!

and I nearly lost these last year because they were choked by other plants so
about a month ago i cleared a lot of the plants directly from around it and a am totally pleased I did!
its looking awesome now and there are a ton of new buds showing too! 

Ok soooo now for the challenge!

The sponsor of this challenge is

Sweet Pea Stamps

This fortnight we have another fabulous challenge theme
 is Favourite Brights or Pastels (& why)
Ok so last challenge I said that the theme was a no brainer for me it was definitely all about the colours
well I have to say that with that is mind
that my total favourite is Brights!

Yes the brighter the better and I love love love bright colours and will choose them every time over pastels,
 I wear brights and I make brights I love the bright colours in nature too!
