Pagan Eye: Sea Pinks and White Butterfly

This picture of a white butterfly on sea pinks is another from my Orkney holiday album.

These beautiful and hardy seaside flowers were growing in huge numbers on the Brough of Birsay and looking lovely in the sun. If you live by the coast this is the perfect plant for your garden as they are very drought and wind resistant and flower all through the summer.

Sea pinks, which are also known as lady's cushion or thrift, are great for bees and butterflies and in folklore are associated with fairy places. I don't know what type of butterfly I captured in my photograph, but if you know please leave a comment below.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
